Alison Rayner Quintet

ARQ's profile has risen dramatically over the past five years, with extensive touring and critical acclaim for their two albums 'August' (2014) and 'A Magic Life' (2016). They carried off the 2018 Parliamentary Jazz Awards 'Ensemble of the Year' award and Alison was runner-up Best Double Bass 2018 British Jazz Awards. The group's third album 'Short Stories' is due for release October 2019.
"If the first rule of life is to do what makes you happy… this album tumbles and flows with such a spirit, performed by a quintet whose musicality and heart enables it; a celebration of life itself" - LondonJazzNews. "A gorgeous album synthesising mood, melody and the interplay between musicians totally at home with each other" - Jazzwise.
