Nervous Neal Smith
I'm currently working as a freelance saxophonist in the Iowa/Illinois Quad City area. My best-known band association was with a klez-punk quartet called The Kabalas from 1994-1999. Career highlights include live performances with Dizzy Gillespie, Bernard Allison, Louie Bellson, Alex Chilton, and The Temptations.

Using a record album ("Rhythm Accompaniment", from 1958) intended for dance students as my drummer, I set out to add layers to these kitschy old dance grooves. I composed and played everything else, apart from keyboard on the tracks "Forever Never Changes" and "Madelyn", which feature Matt Podschweit on the keys. Recorded onto a Boss BR-1600 digital workstation and mixed primarily in Acid Pro 7.
