EDDIE PREVOST QUARTET - various

























LARRY STABBINS  tenor and soprano saxophones
VERYAN WESTON   piano
MARCIO MATTOS   bass
EDDIE PREVOST   drums

1. Bracknell Jazz Festival, Recital Room, 4th July 1981  34:36
2. BBC R3 'Jazz in Britain' (inc) b'cast 1981  22:26
3. Seven Dials Jazz Club, London 3rd January 1985  30:58

There's been some recent interest in the great Larry Stabbins who has sadly hung up his saxophone these days.  I had a look through some boxes and came up with these sessions.  None are exactly hifi but all are listenable.  I didn't record any of them, so thanks to the original tapers.

The Eddie Prevost Quartet also existed with Evan Parker instead of  Larry. One of their gigs I attended at the Duke of Wellington goes down as one of my favourite gigs of all time.  Unfortunately unrecorded.

Nice one. The guys is a great saxophonist for sure. The Stonephace stuff he released was superb, I saw him in that unit at the Vortex with the great Zoey Rahman on keys. I heard he'd retired and is living on Cornwall. Shame.

Thanks Andy
Those 3 tracks + the update on the 50 birthday concert and the track with the John Stevens Trio on the Benefit Concert for Terry Day gives a more complete overview on Larry Stabbins fantastic sound and creativity.

Andy,

Many thanks for posting these. It really takes me back to the free scene heyday of London in the seventies and eighties where there were places such as The Peanuts Club, Duke of Wellington, Plough in Stockwell and the Seven Dials etc

Paul,
