Best known for his work with Harry Connick Jr., the St. Louis-born double bass virtuoso pays tribute to one of the “most important figures in twentieth century American music, Charles Mingus.”
Bassist Neal Cain began his musical training at the young age of 3 with the violin, and progressed from the electric and acoustic bass during his high school years. During his freshman year at Tulane University in New Orleans, Neal was offered the chance to join the Delfeayo Marsalis Quintet for their European tour. This would open the door for Caine to work with artists such as Diana Krall, Betty Carter and Harry Connick Jr., whom he has been working with since 2000 as a member of the singer’s big band. Considered one “one of the premier jazz bassist on the scene today,” Neal has racked up quite the impressive musical career as a musician and composer in the jazz scene.
