“In the first rank of contemporary bassists”, Alison Rayner came to prominence in the ‘80’s (along with Deirdre Cartwright) with the renowned all-woman band, The Guest Stars. She feels her excellent group allows her musical ambitions full rein. Reviewing last year’s album, A Magic Life, Ian Mann wrote: “The quintet’s multi-faceted pieces are full of delightful colour and detail – but for all their sophistication remained wholly accessible and unfailingly melodic”.  Expect a highly rhythmic,  tuneful evening of jazz, with other flavours - Latin, funk, folk - expertly mixed in.
