Playing the compositions of bandleader and multi-award winning composer, Laura Jurd, Dinosaur explore Laura’s distinctive yet ever-evolving music with playful abandon and technical prowess, earning them a reputation as some of the best UK jazz musicians of their generation. Having played at some of the world’s most iconic jazz festivals including North Sea, Molde and Montréal, the band goes from strength to strength in their 10th year of trumpet-led, improvisatory magic. Third album ‘To The Earth’ (May 2020) received critical acclaim with material sure to feature in tonight’s gig.
