Cyril Neville Compares New Album To Musical Gumbo

(The Blues) Cyril Neville describes his upcoming album "Magic Honey" as "musical gumbo." The 64-year-old percussionist and vocalist is enjoying a new lease of life with supergroup Royal Southern Brotherhood but he's still found time to put together a 12-track solo record he believes will keep listeners guessing.

He says of the effort, "I'm extremely proud of this album. It's a tasteful, well-cooked musical gumbo that I think will be pleasing to the palates of music lovers.

"Making it was a spiritual event; we approached it like it was an important gig we were playing. All the tracks are first takes. The atmosphere was just that electric."

Neville was joined for recording sessions by 'Mean' Willie Green on drums, Craston Clements on guitar, Carl Dufrene on bass and Norman Caesar on keys, while producer David Z worked his own magic. more on this story
