Highly skilled and versatile, equally at home on either saxophone or flute, Allison Neale started playing by ear at an early age, assimilating the stylistic approach of many players, but above all Paul Desmond and Art Pepper, with whom she still has a particular affinity. Allison was born in Seattle, USA and raised in Northamptonshire, her debut CD “Melody Express” was released to critical acclaim, in early 2004 on 33 Records. “I defy anyone not to be charmed by this beautiful CD. Allison Neale plays the alto saxophone with a tone so light and airy that it melts at the edges” - Dave Gelly, The Observer.
