Description

The album 'A Magic Life' was recorded in London during the summer of 2016. It's bursting with melodic and harmonic references from classical, roots and folk musics. Rayner cites both Charlie Haden and Eberhard Weber as influences - but there is always a strong sense of Rayner's musical personality evident in the poignant folk-inspired melodies, rootsy grooves and improvisational invention.

In ARQ, Alison Rayner has gathered a group of fine musicians who sympathetically support her music: Steve Lodder (piano), Deirdre Cartwright (guitar), Diane McLoughlin (saxophones) and Buster Birch (drums). The group's imaginative and assured playing are superbly suited to Rayner's compositions and reflect a confidence inspired by working intensively together, touring her first album 'August'.

Press Quotes for 'August':

"The recent album August shows her to be a superb composer...a perfect showcase of Rayner's diverse talents" - Jazz UK

"Together they sound like a band with a long collective pedigree and a delight in playing together." - Jazz Journal
