Hugely talented young trumpeter composer whose 2012 debut album “Landing Ground” is a brilliant and convincing mix of jazz and classical influences.
"Combining elements of both jazz and contemporary classical music the album represents a stunningly mature debut statement that is certain to make Jurd one of the names to watch out for in 2013."
"The mix of jazz, classical, folk, world and electronic elements is truly unique, yet it all comes together to create an impressively coherent whole, with Jurd’s vision the unifying force."
