Laura Jurd (UK)
Stepping Back, Jumping In
Award-winning trumpet player and composer Laura Jurd is one of the most distinctive jazz musicians to emerge from the UK in recent years. With her trio and her band Dinosaur, she is soaring new heights. Her improvisation style is often colourful, attractive and recognisable.
With her new album ‘Stepping Back, Jumping In’ (Edition Records - 2019) she takes it to the next level and starts a new musical story. The album is full of sonic contrast, multiple layers and dimensions, with rigorous composition alongside improvisatory spaces. The result is dynamic, vibrant music that welcomes multiple listens, showcasing some of the most exciting composer-instrumentalists around today. This truly eclectic album is brought to life by 14 incredible musicians. A definite must-see!
