“Jazz of the purest… a mere two numbers in and [the audience] were screaming and yelling.
It was a gas and every one of the punters lapped it up.” Jazz Journal
“Neal Richardson has a great understanding of how to reel in the audience…
one could sense them getting more involved and on his side” London Jazz News

British pianist/singer/songwriter Neal Richardson’s new project ‘The Maximalist’, his 2nd album, tells a story through blues-tinged, gutsy originals and modern twists on well-known standards. There are shades of Ray Charles, Georgie Fame & Harry Connick Jr in Neal’s style.
