The live show is spellbinding, incorporating instrumental virtuosity and 3 part vocal harmony which adds a unique dimension to the sound, creating an uplifting take on infectious rhythms from Brazil and Cuba to the audience.
Havana Club is nothing short of spectacular, reminiscent, at times of the great works of Michel Camillo and Chick Corea, this brazillian - fusion trio album is world class and is a very fulfilling listen. I won’t highlight any particular title on the album as they’re all great, so, as I say: just take a moment to check it out." Blues & Soul Magazine

In 2007 the Neil Angilley Trio recorded their 1st album, 'Havana Club'
Composed by Neil Angilley, the trio's 3rd recording, ‘The Lake District' is a symphonic work, an eclectic mix of Jazz & Classical music for Piano, Electric Bass & Drums.
The piece is written in 9 movements which are a musical description of the beautiful Lake District in England. The work is dedicated to children’s author and conservationist Beatrix Potter who donated a lot of her land to the National Trust. This composition draws on influences from great British classical composers such as Elgar & Vaughan Williams.
Their 2nd recording is 'Chango' and is a tribute to the people of Yoruba. It is the music, spirit, culture and their God, Chango, that was the inspiration for making this album.
Chango was voted best album of the year by French Magazine - Mundo Latino.

In 2022 the trio released their 5th album.
Recorded live at the 606 Club during one of their regular shows at the club. The 606 was where the trio was originally formed making it's debut performance at the club.
The 606 Club originated as a small 30 seater basement venue at 606 Kings Road. It cultivated a solid reputation through the 70’s and 80’s amongst musicians and audiences as the jazz hang-out and in May 1988 it moved to its present basement site at 90 Lots Road.
With over an hour of music, this live album showcases the trio at it's very best.
