I contacted Simon (thanks for the advice Angel). He responded quite quickly and seems very personable. Here is his response to the set-up question....

"My set up is still the same as it was when i recorded the frame album. C*
selmer soloist (bit hard to find, but i got mine over the www from usa),
vandoren blue 4 (rubbed down a tiny bit - most of them are rubbish but when
you get that good one you're away) and cheap and nasty freebie ligature (i
find that the modern techno ligatures allow the reed much more freedom -
good in theory but it makes the sound brighter, which i tend to shy away
from on sop)."

And as all pro's and amateurs alike...his secret.....long tones. Go figure huh!?
