- 08 Dec 2021

Each week the team at Edition selects one album from our catalogue to highlight as Album of the Week.

Dinosaur | To the Earth (2020)

Chosen by: Daniel Garel, Product Manager

 

“this is an open-handed celebration of jazz’s century of eloquence and influence, not its trade secrets.”

The Guardian

 

Product Manager Daniel explains why he’s has chosen To the Earth as his Album of the Week:

 

“I LOVE Dinosaur – they were one of the first bands that made me start taking notice of the label when I was studying and I’ve really enjoyed following each and every album they put out in the last couple of years. This album – To the Earth, released in 2020 – also encapsulates what I love about the band led by trumpet player Laura Jurd – it’s a group that’s willing to take risks, totally comfortable to experiment and there’s a real playfulness and joy that comes through on the record.

A particular standout song for me is Held By Water – a phenomenal track that’s got an attitude and a real intensity about it. Dinosaur produces some of the most exciting improvised music being made in the UK and that’s why I’ve chosen their latest release as my album of the week.”

To the Earth is available to buy direct from our store HERE.
