London-based septet Nérija consist of Nubya Garcia (tenor saxophone), Sheila Maurice-Grey (trumpet), Cassie Kinoshi (alto saxophone), Rosie Turton (trombone), Shirley Tetteh (guitar), Lizy Exell (drums) and Rio Kai (bass). The band share writing duties and the diversity shows: the frantic afro-funk of ‘Last Straw’ contrasts with the loping mellow of ‘Nascence’, the poly-rhythmic ‘Swift’ duels with the spacious, expansive laid back of ‘EU (Emotionally Unavailable) while other highlights include the punchy, bittersweet ‘Riverfest’ and the ebbing ‘Unbound’ gradually builds and gains momentum as it goes. Really good, hip young jazz album.
