It's in the youtube comments - Alfred 'Pee Wee' Ellis. Never heard of him before, but.... Wow!

Ooooh yes, sounds like a plan. You are welcome to have play on my sop sometime to try it out if you're visiting the family. I'm practicing Le Petit Fleur with it.

Pee Wee Ellis is a great player - hope you caught him on bari at the end of this clip. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfred_"Pee_Wee"_Ellis

He played in James Brown's horn section for a long time (along with Maceo Parker and Fred Wesley on trombone - also in this Van Morrisson clip). And now lives in Frome, Somerset !

Pee Wee Ellis plays bari and tenor on quite a few Van Morrison recordings, including one of my favourites 'Precious Time' which has a great solo:


Love it !

Rhys
