To quote from the Foghorn label blurb for their 2010 release:
“A Big Hand” is a meeting of the ecstatic jazz of Sunny Murray saxophonist Tony Bevan and the industrial rumble of Furt/Barks Phillip Marks and Paul Obermayer, with Steve Reid bassist Dominic Lash holding the groove in the middle. Like a Sonny Rollins Trio in a tumble-dryer, or Maceo Parker with Kononos No. 1.”
Dominic Lash is an Bristol based double bassist. Important long-term musical collaborators include Angharad Davies, Bruno Guastalla, Alexander Hawkins, Tim Hill, Steve Noble, Samantha Rebello, Pat Thomas, Philipp Wachsmann and Alex Ward.
