Dinosaur is one of the most vital and creative new instrumental bands in Europe. Shortlisted for the 2017 Hyundai Mercury Prize for their “masterful Jazz album”, ‘Together, As One’, the vibrant ensemble, led by trumpeter and BBC New Generation Artist, Laura Jurd, has risen to widespread prominence garnering huge acclaim and attention from the world’s media. Dinosaur is a versatile and dynamic creature that cultivates the rich history of rhythmic music whilst entering new terrain with a sense of joyful curiosity and inventiveness.

A new album due for release in May 2018, followed by further extensive touring will no doubt shoot the band into the international stratosphere. Dinosaur is the new British jazz supergroup making music that could not be made by any other band.
