This latest offering encapsulates a unique hybrid of approaches into an all original

9 track album which unifies New Orleans style clave rhythms, hard-bop

‘Coltrane changes’, Boogaloo grooves reminiscent of Lee Morgan’s ‘The Sidewinder’ and influences from 70’s funk, surf-rock and Country music’s.

 

Neil is joined by a stellar cast of musicians from the NZ jazz community that include drummer Ron Samsom, bassist Olivier Holland, Grant Winterburn (keys),

 Roger Mannins (Baritone Sax) and Lewis McCallum (Alto Sax).

Album mixed by Jeremy Toy (She’s So Rad, Leonard Charles)
