DINOSAUR - Hardanger


women in jazz - what still sounds like a contradiction is becoming less so by the minute. A Guardian article from last week presents five of the best new female jazz musicians out there, and among them, Laura Jurd really catched my ear. To say that she’s an “award-winning trumpeter and composer” is an understatement, she is making her way in Britain and just released her third album as a band leader while just in her twenties, with a new band consisting of old friends and collaborators called DINOSAUR.
Watch out world. It’s kind of new, and it’s well done.
