Royal Solent Jazz Night

Saturday 4 November 2017

The Royal Solent Yacht Club is proud to announce the first appearance on the Isle of Wight of alto saxophonist Allison Neale.

Allison’s beautifully crafted lines evoke the spirit of Paul Desmond and Art Pepper.  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.  She frequently tours the UK with her current Quartet, which also features acclaimed jazz pianist Leon Greening, bassist Julian Bury and drummer Steve Brown,  and has three CDs to her name. ‘Melody Express’ with guitarist Dave Cliff and ‘Blue Concept’ with trumpeter Gary Kavanagh, are both on 33 Records. "I Wished on the Moon " is on the Trio Records label and features the quartet as well as Milt Jackson-influenced vibraphonist Nat Steele.

Allison will be accompanied by the Nick Page quartet.  They are well-known on the Island and have previously appeared at the Royal Solent with saxophonist Gary Plumley.  Nick’s quartet includes Jim Thorn (piano), Jon Thorne (bass) and Ken Black (drums).  Jim is the Event Director of the very successful Newport Jazz Weekend.
