ARQ – the Alison Rayner Quintet

Bassist and composer Alison Rayner steps to the fore with a new jazz, latin and funk-inspired quintet. More usually seen driving the rhythm sections of Deirdre Cartwright Group, the Vortex Foundation Big Band and Blow the Fuse club nights, her compositions are influenced by artists as diverse as Charlie Haden, Jaco Pastorius, Bill Evans, Pat Metheny, Steely Dan, Afro Cuban dance music and European folk…
This debut gig features Diane McLoughlin (saxophone) Deirdre Cartwright (guitar)  Steve Lodder (piano)  Winston Clifford (drums)

?Big warm acoustic sound, faultless time, tuning and taste and creative solo ability – clearly belongs in the front rank of contemporary bassists.? Digby Fairweather

?A versatility, precision and sensitivity that is quite awesome.? Adeola Agbebiyi
