Versatile and assured composer/arranger and saxophonist, Andrew Neu, has soared on stage with a number of superstars - he can play ANY genre, making songs pop as if you never heard them before Andrew.

But, brother and sister - can he play JAZZ :)  A Temple University Music School grad, my fellow Philadelphian has honed his lessons well.  With the Peter Nero Philly Pops, Brian Pastor and Anthony Bonsera Big Bands, and the Bright and Tight Horns.  This young man is BUSY!

Hold on, though - let's tell you the stage-sharing that Andrew has had: Household names like Rosemary Clooney, Mel Torme, Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme (God rest her soul!).  Then there's Elton John, Patti Labelle, Tito Puente, The Four Tops, Smokey Freaking Robinson - and anyone in "The City of Brotherly Love" that wanted their sound or recordings infused with a new level of energy and passion.

Andrew has been getting buzz for quite a while - years - most recently because he is a beloved and ardently showcased member of Bobby Caldwell's on-fire band.  But now we see that there's a new road that is taking our guest to the superstardom that he deserves.  " Everything Happens For a Reason" couldn't have dropped at a better time.  That philosophy and the absolutely on-point music within this project.  Long-time believers in Andrew's talent drop by for their input and the result is a source of intense pride for those of us who champion Philly-based artists.

Please join us on 8/13/2013 for an exciting visit with Andrew Neu.  Music starts at one - we'll have LOTS of NEW releases (I had to do it :) and we'll celebrate the loving life of George Duke as well.  My guest joins us (me, along with the Chat Room) at two p.m. Eastern USA time.
