Dinosaurs and Birds point to the future

(Preview by George MacKellar)
Following several visits up north from her London base (including a performance in November 2015 at the Lit and Phil), Laura Jurd is bringing her innovative brand of contemporary Jazz to the Sage 2 Gateshead on 19th January at 20:00. Laura and her four piece band “Dinosaur” were well received on their previous visit to town, with each musician demonstrating considerable virtuosity through music which seemed to move through all the different musical genres – classical, funk, free jazz, bebop and back again. Jurd’s use of electronics with the trumpet were recorded to be “marvellously innovative”.
As a bonus Laura will be supported by Newcastle’s very own Early Bird Band, a sextet of 16-18 year olds founded and mentored by musician and composer Paul Edis. Inspired by the music of Charlie Parker, the Early Bird musicians emerged onto the scene last year at the Lit and Phil, the Jazz café and elsewhere playing a range of bebop standards and home grown compositions.
So if you are free, why not spend an evening supporting the Jazz musicians of tomorrow? Tickets are on sale for £12 from the Sage website and box office.
George
