The Neville Brothers: Live At The Shaw Theatre, London

Mick Brown, Guardian, The, 1984

THE NEVILLE Brothers are an institution whose time would seem to have come. Four brothers from New Orleans, their contribution to Crescent City music over the past 20 years has been enormous. Art was a pianist for the Meters, Aaron recorded a minor R&B classic, ‘Tell It Like It Is’ (a hit in both the Sixties and the Seventies), and saxophonist Charles and percussionist Cyril have appeared on countless sessions.
