Preview: ARQ @ the Globe Jazz Bar - November 22.

A star-studded quintet can be heard at the Globe Jazz Bar tomorrow night (Thursday, Nov. 22 - 8pm) when the Jazz Coop and JNE present the award-winning band ARQ.
ARQ, short for Alison Rayner Quintet, was, along with BSH, a winner at the recent Parliamentary Jazz Awards ceremony and comprises five of the UK's finest.

I first heard Deirdre Cartwright at the Side Café back in 2009 when, with fellow guitarist Kathy Dyson, they paid tribute to the late Emily Remler. Four years later, I heard her again, this time at a bar in Stoke Newington where Alison Rayner was on bass and Diane McLoughlin sat in on tenor. Pianist Steve Lodder has popped up at Scarborough Jazz Festival on several occasions whilst, although I may not have heard drummer Buster Birch live, I have heard him on disc including on an album with this present line-up.

The album, August, was a cracker and I think we can expect more fireworks at the Globe tomorrow night and all for a tenner! 
Not to be missed!
