Together, as One by Dinosaur, (Laura Jurd, Elliot Galvin, Conor Chaplin, and Corrie Dick). I was listening to a podcast from WNYC about what they called “Jazz Adjacent Artists” and this recording from Dinosaur stuck out as the most potentially interesting.
Led by Trumpeter Laura Jurd, this group is operating in the vicinity of Post-Miles fusion with a few modern touches. If I had to complain about anything, I’d say it’s a tad overwritten. I wish they’d spend more time improvising and less time reading music.
Pleasant and enjoyable, but not compelling. (I bet my Fusion enthusiast, Millennial co-worker would love it.)
