Nérija Vinyl, CD & tapes by Nérija at Norman Records
Domino grab a piece of the London jazz action by signing up group Nérija. The septet - which features celebrated young saxophonist Nubya Garcia, among others - showcase an energetic and soulful sound on this eponymous debut EP. Cuts like ‘The Fisherman’ and ‘Valleys’ are reminiscent of Tony Allen’s recent Blue Note output. Elsewhere on Nérija the band show their range with ‘For You’, a number that swells from bluesy ballad to a free-noise climax ala John Coltrane.
