Music Network presents: Concert— Dinosaur (UK) Following boldly in the footsteps of the likes of Polar Bear and Phronesis, Dinosaur skilfully weave electric-jazz, Celtic folk melodies and north African drumming styles into a sound reminiscent of late-1960s Miles Davis. The band has been performing together for over six years. The result: utterly compelling live performances and a wonderfully cohesive group sound – a playful fusion of sparse, epigrammatic trumpet lines, catchy riffs, shifting dance grooves and pulsing bass lines. With the release of their highly-acclaimed album ‘Together, As One’ in 2016, Dinosaur is destined to build upon their fast growing international reputation. Catch them while you can!
