Dinosaur
Hare & Hounds
June 14, 2018

Tonite, for one nite only, this is the band called Dinoseb, or perhaps Polarsaur. For some mysterious reason, Dinosaur's regular sticksman Corrie Dick went missing, to be guest-starred by Seb Rochford, most famed for his own combo, Polar Bear. Even more shocking was ...

Brilliant Corners 2018
Black Box
jny: Belfast, N. Ireland
March 3-10, 2018

Compared to Dublin or cities in the UK, Belfast is usually overlooked when jazz groups tour. When the likes of Wayne Shorter, Charles Lloyd, Ahmad Jamal, Keith Jarrett or Brad Mehldau come to Ireland it's usually a one-stop ...

Laura Jurd: Big Footprints

Read "Laura Jurd: Big Footprints" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Every few years a band appears that injects a welcome shot of adrenaline into the jazz mainstream, exciting media, promoters and fans alike--the Neil Cowley Trio, Phronesis, GoGo Penguin and Snarky Puppy all spring to mind. Dinosaur, an English quartet led by trumpeter Laura Jurd, is being widely tipped to create such waves on the strength ...

Dinosaur: Together, As One

Read "Together, As One" reviewed by Ian Patterson

The debut album of the newly baptized Dinosaur--but the second album of the group formerly known as the Laura Jurd Quartet, following Landing Ground (Chaos Collective, 2012)--sees composer Jurd inspired by Miles Davis's late 1960s/early 1970s electric period. Though Jurd's trumpet, Elliot Galvin's Fender Rhodes/Hammond soundscapes and the persistent grooves plied by Conor Chaplin and Corrie ...

Jasper Høiby: Fellow Creatures

Read "Jasper Høiby: Fellow Creatures" reviewed by Phil Barnes

Creativity is an unpredictable beast, yesterday's inspiration can soon turn stale, evaporating with the morning dew if not carefully cultivated and attended to. That idea that was once so exciting can easily become a well-worn rut, or even a trap, into which the unwary can fall. Bassist Jasper Hoiby, a third of Phronesis, appears to recognise ...

Jasper Høiby: Fellow Creatures

Read "Fellow Creatures" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Taking a break from his highly (and justifiably) praised trio Phronesis, virtuoso bassist Jasper Høiby described the rationale for Fellow Creatures thus: “it's been a dream of mine for a while to start a larger ensemble and to have the option of writing for two melody instruments as well as the trio."

Høiby also ...

Laura Jurd: Human Spirit

Read "Human Spirit" reviewed by Ian Patterson

With her debut as leader, Landing Ground (Chaos Collective, 2012), Laura Jurd laid down her marker as a precociously talented composer and musician. Folk, classical and jazz threads united the Ligeti String Quartet with improvising musicians to create a powerful octet that was greater than the sum of its parts. On Human Spirit (Chaos Collective, 2015) ...

Blue-Eyed Hawk: Under The Moon

Read "Under The Moon" reviewed by Ian Patterson

London-based quartet Blue-Eyed Hawk's debut recording has benefited from three years of gigging and the slow stewing of ideas. Collectively, singer Lauren Kinsella, trumpeter Laura Jurd, guitarist Alex Roth and drummer Corrie Dick sounds like the finished article, which whets the appetite for future chapters. With writing duties spread evenly, the quartet soars over wide stylistic ...
