ARQ (Alison Rayner Quintet)
A winner of the Jazz Services Recording Subsidy Award for 2013, bass player and composer Alison Rayner leads this contemporary jazz quintet. Original compositions draw on a love for lyrical melodies, deep grooves and influences from folk, funk and Latin.

The lineup features pianist Steve Lodder (Andy Shepherd, George Russell, John Harle); guitarist Deirdre Cartwright (the Guest Stars and BBC TV’s Rockschool programme); saxophonist Diane McLoughlin (Giant Steppes Jazz Orchestra, Vortex Foundation Big Band) and drummer Buster Birch (Heads South, London Jazz Trio).

ARQ are releasing their first album AUGUST in October 2014, supported by the Jazz Services Recording Subsidy Scheme.
