Saxophonist and composer Neamen Lyles leads a band of top talents in this fantastic show! He has shared the stage with Jeff Lorber, Rick Braun and more and landed concert billings with Dave Koz, Jay Soto and others. He has enjoyed frequent national television and radio airplay, being named an XM Radio Artist of the Week, recording the theme for the television show Dr. Who and landing multiple singles in the smooth jazz top 40 nationwide. He has evolved as an artist since his teen years in Phoenix, then through earning his BA in jazz studies at the University of Arizona Fred Fox School of Music. He has delighted in coaching combos and teaching improvisation at the Tucson Jazz Institute, one of the leading centers for youth jazz instruction in the U.S. His spiritual side keeps him centered and disciplined, and his joy in his performances is palpable and uplifting. His sound honors those who’ve preceded him and adventurously forges new paths. Experience this incredible artist live!
