Charles McNeal

“…When I walked into Pearl’s, the piece “Brujo” was in full swing. It was a swift piece that featured Charles McNeal primarily on soprano sax with Wally kicking and stomping on the drums, pushing Charles to great heights. The group was very tight and seemed to like that tempo. Charles’s alto solo had a contemporary edge on “Tony,” a piece dedicated to Tony Williams.”

“…Charles was into a very avant-garde mode that took the rest of the group in that fast-clip direction.”

“…before slowing the pace for the first of Nelson’s compositions, “A Penthouse Dawn,” admirably performed by the orchestra and alto soloist Charles McNeal.”

“…and long after the party officially closed, she and her group — Charles McNeal on the horns, Mimi Fox on guitar, and Ruth Davies on bass — continued to swing and sing.”
