Ooh, tough one - all great musicians. Canterbury's one of those genres I'm so vague on, I've only heard a handful of albums to be quite honest. Richard Sinclair is a pretty prolific guy though, not my favourite musician, but he gets around. Big smile

^ Not fusion, though, right?

Me: Bob Wyatt. His work with SM, Matching Mole, solo - he really knew how to get it on. An outstanding drummer, vocalist, and writer (what an ear for melody).

I voted Mont Campbell because he's the coolest, especially as an old man

Same.  I love Wyatt in Soft Machine, Matching Mole, his "solo" work, as well as various other projects/albums he contributed to.  He's also the artist included in PA that I'd most like to meet.

Mine too, closely followed by Richard Sinclair and Pip Pyle. 
Both made some excellent compositions, and Richard has a great voice too.
Correct. Richard Sinclair's voice is so unique.Still waiting for a re-release of "Back to Front ",a really under-rated  Caravan album.

Me too, and I would add Clive Brooks to the list. Voted for Mont Campbell anyway.

That's what I was saying. How can all Canterbury (incl. JRF stuff like that from National Health and Matching Mole and SM) be hippy-trippy?

Based on last weekend's excessive use of Caravan, I'm going with Dave Sinclair. There are so many others I could've voted for here, but Sinclair fulfils every need I crave for in music. He's got feel, intonation, a natural naiveness and maybe some of the most recognisable organ licks known to man. I simply adore his playing.

If only Jennings used a fuzz-box on his Hammond..............their debut album is simply magic, but not what I'd consider Canterbury.......

One tough list to vote for only one! Went with Wyatt for his creativity, mutability and strength. 

Surprised Pierre Moerlen isn't on the list.

Really tough choice....they are all great.
Went with Stewart because he's been excellent in so many Canterbury bands.
