Elliot Galvin + Laura Jurd

Part of EFG London Jazz Festival

Two members of the Mercury-nominated Dinosaur showcase their respective trios in a double bill of brilliant jazz.

Composer and pianist Elliot Galvin’s maverick imagination and ability to blend a disparate world of influences into his own unique musical vision has seen him compared to Django Bates.

His acclaimed latest trio album, Modern Times, featuring long-term collaborators Corrie Dick on Drums and Tom McCredie on drums, is his most stripped-back and honest album yet.

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) on bass and longtime collaborator and Dinosaur bandmate Corrie Dick (Elliot Galvin, Rob Luft) on drums as they present selected songs from across the centuries.

Across one evening the pair and their trios explore the influences that have informed their critically acclaimed musical output of the last few years.
