I discovered Larry Stabbins a year or so back playing with Jerry Dammers' Sun Ra tribute orchestra- he totally blew me away with his power and lyricism (and incredible control of altissimo screaming- something close to my heart!). Subsequently picked up his album 'Stonephace'- with various members of Portishead.... So, meet the West Country Pharoah Sanders- http://www.myspace.com/larrystabbins

Blimey, is he still around then?

Still as noisy as ever I see.

Can't remember when I first came across him. He was certainly in Keith Tippett's big orchestra that did Septober Energy in the early seventies.

Yes, he's a great player from way back, I particularly remember him from Working Week I think they were called, but he was of course around before that.

The front line of Horns with the spatial AKA orchestra are really quite something- Dennis Battiste on tenor, Larry Stabbins- also tenor, Jason Yarde on Soprano (particualrly elegant), Nathaniel Phacey from Empirical on alto and Terry Edwards of Gallon Drunk on Baritone.....
