Sax player Charles Neville gains 'spot in the heavenly band'

Charles Neville's serene stage presence and soulful saxophone mastery earned him the affectionate title of "the horn man" while playing with his siblings in The Neville Brothers, one of New Orleans' most influential bands known for their rollicking blend of funk, jazz and rhythm and blues. Neville died Thursday after a months-long battle with pancreatic cancer. Neville's career dated to the 1950s when he performed with B.B. King and other musical greats.
