Words and Music by Laura Jurd

★★★★1/2 All About Jazz - review by Ian Patterson

"On Human Spirit (Chaos Collective, 2015) Jurd eschews strings, piano and bass in favor of brass, electric guitar and vocals and the resulting music is rawer and punchier. Stylistically too, the music is more streamlined, sounding more like a band than a sophisticated musical experiment.

Surrounded by like-minded musicians, Jurd's unconventional idiom spurns cliché and convention in favor of sonic adventure. Yet Jurd embraces melody, harmony and groove as much as she provokes with blasts of dissonance and gutsy angularity. It's the combination of sweet and grinding, soothing and fiery that makes for such compelling listening"
