Short Stories


‘Alison Rayner is the band’s bassist, and for some reason bass-playing jazz composers (Charles Mingus and Charlie Haden, for instance) seem particularly good at conjuring scenes and atmospheres.’

Dave Gelly, The Observer ★★★★

‘ARQ have come up with another impeccable album featuring warm, colourful, intelligent writing and some exceptional playing’.

Ian Mann, The Jazzmann ★★★★1/2
