Stonephace

A 11 track trip-hop album (49m 53s) — released April 20th 2009 on Tru Thoughts
Band leader Larry Stabbins (who had a Top 25 album with Working Week) is one of the UK's most celebrated and bankable jazz saxophonists and musical innovators. Producer Krzysztof Oktalski's background lies in breaks, drum 'n' bass and hip hop, not to mention being a lynchpin of the Cornish rave scene. Portishead guitarist Adrian Utley provides his virtuoso musicianship throughout the album, bridging the sonic gap between the jazz sensibility and the dirty electronic weirdness, joined by fellow Portishead member Jim Barr on bass. Also featuring a turn from Dizzy Gillespie collaborator Guy Barker on trumpet, 'Stonephace' is getting people excited across the genre spectrum. "A great, great album. Larry Stabbins is one of the finest musicians of all time!" Gilles Peterson (BBC Radio1) "FIVE MILES HIGH is incredible. It blew me away. WEDGEHEAD GETS LUCKY is a beauty too." Ashley Beedle "Easily the best contemporary album I've heard this year!
