Alison Rayner Quintet
June 28 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Please see www.orpingtonjazzclub.co.uk for full details including map. Free parking and a CAMRA award winning bar.ARQ is a vital and creative jazz quintet led by bass player Alison Rayner, whose profile has risen dramatically over the past four years, with extensive touring and critical acclaim for their second album, ‘A Magic Life’. They won Jazz Ensemble of the Year at the 2018 Parliamentary Jazz Awards and topped the ‘People’s Vote at the British Jazz Awards 2018.
In ARQ, Alison Rayner has gathered a group of fine musicians who sympathetically support her music: Steve Lodder on piano, Deirdre Cartwright on guitar, Diane McLoughlin on saxophones and Buster Birch on drums. The group’s imaginative and assured playing are superbly suited to Rayner’s compositions and reflect a confidence inspired by working intensively together.
“In a Jazz age with an abundance of technical excellence – and ARQ have it in great quantity – we look for something else as well. ARQ bring to the stage a musical bond that is expressed in such fun and joyful moments that it is a pleasure to be in the room with them. Jazz of the highest quality.” Phil Rose, Birmingham Jazz
