“rhapsodic…with shrewd use of space and restraint”
Neil Angilley is a brilliant pianist, equally at home playing jazz, Latin or classical. As an original member of Grammy-nominated band "Down To The Bone", Neil has co-written and played on many of their no1 albums, most recently ‘The Sweetness’ which charted at no.1 in the USA Billboard Charts for Jazz/Funk. Neil has also appeared as a guest soloist on various albums including 'An Ordinary Day in an Unusual Place' - US3, 'Fuzzy Logic' - David Benoit (GRP) and 'Crush' - Richard Elliot (Verve). As well as appearing on the main stage at Glastonbury with Dame Shirley Bassey, Neil has also performed with Vanessa-Mae, Maceo Parker, Lionel Richie, Lisa Stansfield and Three Friends (Gentle Giant), amongst many others. For this show tonight Neil and his regular, storming rhythm section of Davide Mantovani (Baaba Maal, Jason Rebello) on bass and Davide Giovannini (Paul McCartney, Steve Winwood) on drums will be playing music from their latest album, "Yambou", a fusion of Latin, jazz and funk with a touch of flavours from the East. In a departure from their previous work, the music features three-part vocal harmony which adds a unique dimension to the sound.
