These are a few songs from the fabulous Alison Rayner Quintet.  This was the last - sell out - gig before Lockdown, and what a great night it was. These tracks were recorded at Pizza Express Live just before the Birmingham gig so represent all that was good at the Jazz performance.

A welcome return for this fantastic quintet, who have won the “Best Jazz Ensemble of the Year: Parliamentary Award last year. Of cause, they have a new recording – Short Stories - to perform for the gig, and retain the best line up available.  Led by the very personable Alison Rayner (Alison Rayner Quintet) and features legends of the British Jazz/Rock scene.
