Alison Rayner Quintet
Bassist and composer Alison Rayner steps to the fore with a new jazz, latin and funk-inspired quintet, and is visiting us as part of her UK tour to launch her album.
Her compositions are influenced by artists as diverse as Charlie Haden, Jaco Pastorius, Bill Evans, Pat Metheny, Afro-Cuban dance music and European folk.
Alison Rayner (bass), Diane McLoughlin (sax), Deirdre Cartwright (guitar), Steve Lodder (piano) and Buster Birch (drums).
“Big warm acoustic sound, faultless time, tuning and taste and creative solo ability Alison Rayner clearly belongs in the front rank of contemporary bassists” – Digby Fairweather.
