Entrance £8, non-members £11 – 50% reduction for students
Jazz saxophonist and flautist Allison Neale was born in Seattle, USA, and raised in Northamptonshire. Allison 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 spent her formative years playing alto in the Midland Youth Jazz orchestra where she had the opportunity to perform with many leading international artists. Holding the flute chair in the National Youth Jazz Orchestra between 1996 and 1998 propelled her development and in no time at all Allison was a well sought after musician. An extremely melodic & lyrical approach to jazz gives Allison a wide appeal and we welcome her return to Googlies.
