RETRO WELCOMES TOP ALTO SAXOPHONIST ALLISON NEALE!
Allison performs with the Terry Collie Trio on our next Jazz Night Tuesday September 25th from 7.30pm. Jazz Night snack menu alongside the usual award-winning menus! Bookings online or the
usual number: 0208 977 2239.
Born in Seattle USA, but resident in the UK, 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.
“ 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
