4191A heavyweight, genre-bending collaboration featuring Adrian Utley (Portishead) and Larry Stabbins (Working Week), Stonephace encompasses a filthy hip hop production aesthetic, jazz pedigree, indie credentials and a big dose of psychedelia. Band leader Larry Stabbins (who had a Top 25 album with Working Week and has featured in NME, Melody Maker, Rolling Stone, and recently played at Nelson Mandela’s 90th birthday celebration) is one of the UK’s most celebrated and bankable jazz saxophonists and musical innovators. Producer Krzysztof Oktalski’s background lies in breaks, drum & 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.

“Easily the best contemporary album I’ve heard this year! Fantastic!” Jazz House – BBC Radio Scotland
