UK trumpet player Laura Jurd has carved a reputation as one of the most characterful voices in European jazz today. Her distinctive approach to improvisation is often simple yet always colourful, resulting in a sound that is instantly inviting and recognisable.
Here she is joined by kindred spirits Ruth Goller (Melt Yourself Down, Vula Viel) and longtime collaborator and Dinosaur bandmate Corrie Dick (Elliot Galvin, Rob Luft) as they present selected songs from across the centuries. From John Dowland to Bill Withers, the trio breathes new life into some of Laura’s favourite melodies.
This evening will also mark the premiere of a new work by Laura, commissioned to celebrate Watermill Jazz’s 25th anniversary.
