JAZZUP! Club85 Hitchin, Saturday 30th June 2018
This is the last JazzUp of the season before we take our summer break (returning in September).
It is most definitely one not to miss; one of the most vital and creative new ensembles in Europe
2018 sees Mercury-nominated Dinosaur back in action with some immensely colourful, new music
full of imagination and surprise. Led by BBC New Generation Artist 2015-17, trumpeter Laura Jurd,
their highly anticipated second album 'Wonder Trail' (to be released May 2018) sees the band
further their exploration into the world of 'synth-pop meets jazz band' as they present a journey of
mesmerising new compositions. Expect folk-infused grooves and glistening melodies - all tied
together by a love for extemporisation and improvisation.
Receiving a rare 5-star review in the Guardian for their 2016 debut album, ‘Together, As One’, the
band have toured extensively in Europe and beyond at some of the world's most prestigious
festivals including North Sea Jazz, Montreal Jazz Festival and Molde International Jazz Festival. In
addition they have collaborated with some of the UK's most celebrated ensembles including the
BBC Concert Orchestra, Northern Sinfonia and the Ligeti Quartet.
Laura Jurd - trumpet, synth
Elliot Galvin - synths
Conor Chaplin - electric bass

Plus the return of Les Jazz Rats DJs spinning vinyl between the sets, and for the dance floor later.
