Mercury-nominated Dinosaur continue to delight audiences with their immensely colourful music – full of imagination and surprise.
Composer, trumpet player and Mercury Award nominee Laura Jurd is another representative of the latest insanely talented wave of young British musicians. She has recently made stops at all major points of the festival map, from Montreal via Molde to the North Sea Jazz Festival, and now it’s our turn. The five-star Guardian review for her debut, Together, As One, was just an appetiser for what was to come on Wonder Trail, her follow-up: delicate tones, a surfeit of imagination and a host of surprises as jazz meets synth pop and folk via lovingly crafted improvisation.
