This event has been and gone.

Part of A Message From... live music series. A new band led by bassist and composer Alison Rayner, encompassing the talents of five talented and exciting jazz musicians. They combine diverse influences from American swing and funk and Afro Cuban dance music to contemporary jazz and European folk. The music is accessible and broad in its reach; the compositions are melodic with killer grooves and the improvisational skills of the players are second to none.

Part of ARQ Album tour.

"With her big warm acoustic sound, faultless time, tuning and taste and creative solo ability, she clearly belongs in the front rank of contemporary bassists." - Digby Fairweather
