Allison Neale Quartet

Venue: Culford Room at Cadogan Hall

Performers

Allison Neale
saxophone/flute
Leon Greening
piano
Dario Di Lecce
bass
Matt Fishwick
drums

American born altoist Allison Neale’s beautifully crafted lines evoke the spirit of Paul Desmond and Art Pepper with whom she has a particular affinity.

As a strong advocate of the melodic West Coast style she has performed alongside leading international artists such as Adelaide Hall and Bud Shank and more recently tenorist Scott Hamilton and New York guitarist Peter Bernstein as well as featuring in both the John Dankworth ‘Generations‘ Band, ‘Back to Basie’ Orchestra and the ‘Two of a Mind’ Project with multi-reed man Chris Biscoe.

She frequently tours the UK with her current Quartet, which also features acclaimed jazz pianist Leon Greening, bassist Dario Di Lecce and drummer Matt Fishwick and has two previous CDs to her name, Melody Express with guitarist Dave Cliff, and Blue Concept with trumpeter Gary Kavanagh, both on 33 Records. Her latest CD, I Wished on the Moon, was released in early 2015 on the Trio Records label and features the quartet as well as Milt-Jackson-influenced vibraphonist Nat Steele.

“Allison Neale plays the alto saxophone with a tone so light and airy it positively melts at the edges” (Dave Gelly , The Observer)

“A talent to savour” (Peter Vacher, Jazz UK)
