After graduating from Northern Illinois University with a Bachelor's degree in jazz guitar performance, Neal moved to Chicago and has freelanced with many major jazz artists including Lin Halliday, Ed Thigpen, Howard Levy, Fareed Haque, Grazyna Augusick, and Blue Note recording artist Patricia Barber. Neal's versatility has also enabled him to perform R&B/soul with KFox (DefSoul records), classic rock covers with Cast Iron Skillet, and 20th-century classical music with HardArt Groop. Recently, Neal has released a duo CD with vocalist Typhanie Monique on BluJazz records titled Intrinsic. The great majority of the national and international performances that Neal participates in are with Patricia Barber.
