GMLSTN JAZZ is very proud to present Dinosaur, one of the most vital and creative new ensembles in the UK today. Led by trumpeter & composer Laura Jurd, Dinosaur, featuring star keyboardist Elliot Galvin, & the exciting young rhythm section of Conor Chaplin & Corrie Dick, has performed throughout the UK and Europe including the Berlin Jazz Festival, Jazz Sur Son 31 in Toulouse, 12 Points in Dublin and Jazzahead in Bremen.
Laura Jurd’s rise has already been nothing short of meteoric since she first burst onto the highly creative London scene in 2010. Very quickly she made a bold statement, releasing two highly acclaimed albums, and was selected as a BBC New Generation Artist. With her undeniably unique, creative and joyous spirit and approach to music making, she has developed a formidable reputation as one of the most creative young improvising musicians to emerge from the UK.
In september 2016, Dinosaur released their debut album ‘Together, As One’. Blending elements of folk, jazz and rock, the music is formidable and compelling, and by including electronic instruments (electric bass, fender rhodes and synths) the music adopts a fiery and edgy sound reminiscent of later Miles Davis albums.
