Nick Jurd | Back
Double Bass

Originally from Grantham in Lincolnshire, Nick Jurd's earliest musical endeavours began when he took up flute at the age of seven, but at 12 he switched to the electric bass, and then, inspired by the records of Charles Mingus and Charlie Haden, graduated to the double bass.

He studied jazz at Birmingham Conservatoire, remaining in the city after graduating. His strongly developed rhythmic and harmonic sense, coupled with great musical flexibility, has made him a sought after sideman with a number of bands, including David Grey's 'Greyish Quartet', and he also leads his own quartet.
