These are videos that I like: Dinosaur “Hardanger”


Today’s featured video is from the quartet Dinosaur performing live at Fieldgate Studio.  The song, “Hardanger,” is a track off their new album Together, as One, and was one of my recommendations from last month’s Best of Bandcamp Jazz column.

As we wait for the newest column to publish (perhaps, even, later today), here’s a little music to get us by.  Also, holiday lights, which if I see ’em in a video, I’m probably gonna feature that video.

Your video personnel:  Laura Jurd (trumpet), Elliot Galvin (keyboard), Conor Chaplin (electric bass) and Corrie Dick (drums).

I really liked the turn of events on this album.  Their previous release (when they were going by the name Laura Jurd Quartet) was a nifty display of jazz and strings.  But Together, as One jumps into the deep end of the electro-acoustic sound, and it’s interesting to compare and contrast the approaches between the two albums.Laura Jurd - "Landing Ground"

You can read more about their last album, Landing Ground, here on this site (LINK).  It’s definitely worth checking out.
