Allison Neale Quintet at Jazzlive At The Crypt, St. Giles Church
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, as well as featuring in both the John Dankworth 'Generations' Band and the "Back to Basie" Orchestra.
Drawing from the influences of the great West Coast altoists of the 1950s, her new quintet project "Neale Meets Steele" features Nat Steele on vibraphone, Leon Greening on piano, Luke Steele on bass and Matt Fishwick on drums
They will perform music from her latest CD "I Wished on the Moon" released to great acclaim in 2015 on Trio Records.
