Allison Neale’s latest Quartet reflects her strong West Coast influences and features leading Hungarian jazz pianist Matyas Gayer, bassist Jeremy Brown and drummer Matt Fishwick. 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
