By far the most exciting group around. This album pushes jazz on when so many current artists seem reflective and honouring the past. Not that Dinosaur doesn't, but they infuse their sound with everything else that's going on, and end up making a jazz album that has knowledge of the past but the heartbeat of the now. wing commander beggsie
