American born altoist Allison Neale’s beautifully crafted lines evoke the spirit of Paul Desmond and Art Pepper. An exponent of the West Coast style, she has performed alongside Adelaide Hall, Bud Shank and Scott Hamilton, as well as featuring in the John Dankworth ‘Generations’ Band and the ‘Back To Basie’ Orchestra.
Her new Quintet project ‘Neale Meets Steele’ features vibraphonist Nathaniel Steele, a young musician influenced heavily by Milt Jackson - alongside hard swinging pianist Leon Greening, bassist Julian Bury and Club favourite Steve Brown on drums. They will perform music from Allison’s latest CD ‘I Wished On The Moon’.
‘Allison Neale plays the alto saxophone with a tone so light and airy it positively melts at the edges’ Dave Gelly, The Observer.
Line-up: Allison Neale - alto saxophone, Nathaniel Steele - vibraphone, Leon Greening - piano, Julian Bury - bass, Steve Brown - drums.
All meetings start at 7.45pm - doors open at 6.30pm
