Alison Rayner Quintet
Alison Rayner - double bass/composer / Deirdre Cartwright - guitar /
Steve Lodder - piano / Diane McLoughlin - saxophone / Buster Birch - drums.
‘The quintet’s multi-faceted pieces are full of delightful colour and detail – but for all their sophistication remain wholly accessible and unfailingly melodic.’
‘Rayner’s consistently melodic brand of contemporary jazz combines melody, texture and rhythm, skilfully blending the components together in a way that Pat Metheny might be proud of.
Indeed, Rayner’s writing frequently exhibits a similar gift for melody and her tuneful compositions are given an impressive breadth and colour by a gifted and well drilled band’.
‘There’s a joyousness about much of Rayner’s writing, the majority of which has its roots in personal experiences… there are moments of poignancy, nostalgia and regret but in the main Rayner’s music is a celebration, “A Magic Life” indeed’. thejazzmann.com
“A gorgeous album synthesising mood, melody and the interplay between musicians totally at home with each other.” Jazzwise ★★★★
“…infused with the kind of heady imagination that transforms their resonances into a series of vivacious musical adventures.”
BBC Music Magazine ★★★★★
'Highly intelligible music, characterized by individuality, spirit and a sense of freedom.’ Val Wilmer.
