Check out their live music on YouTube.


"Tenor" is the answer to your question.

Thanks and well found!

So it a Tenor, _ aha! -some nice clear high tones he has there played, playing clear high notes is something I'm very interested in learning

Is that a Yanigasawa he's playing? [I'm trying to learn about these things]

We ('er indoors and me sen) saw them in the ISLA days, playing at Aldeburgh in Suffolk, quite some years ago. Amazing concert. My wonderful wife had got the best seats in the house and we were totally blown away. However my memory is of a silver alto, at least on some of the songs, or I did wonder whether it had been a curved soprano., but I could easily have remembered incorrectly. {edit: just watching that link and yes there is a curved soprano later}

Certainly ISLA is our favourite album and the one that came after that this song is from ,(any guess what sax is he playing on that? Tenor again? ) but after that Album not so much.

Another amazing concert [totally different style!!!] was Colin Stetson with Ex_eye that we saw at the Bimhuis in Amsterdam. That was first time , since then we have also seen him there on his own. { he is miked to throat sing and use keys as percussion at the same time] A marmite player for sure, first time we took a total punt and happened to love it, but as he said to me after when I told him that we had taken a punt, never having heard of him before , "could have gone either way huh?" I think Avant Garde is the term. A few walked out.
