Event Summary

Dave O’Higgins saxes, Rob Luft guitar, Scott Flanigan organ,
Rod Youngs drums
A brand-new collaboration, fronted by sax giant Dave and ‘firebrand’ guitarist Rob. The repertoire will be made up of Thelonious Monk compositions (expect some rarely heard ones!) and tunes played by John Coltrane with special reference to his choice of standards and various collaborations in the 1950s.
Both Monk and Trane were “modernists”, but also steeped in swing and the rich tradition of the beboppers. Dave and Rob intend to respect this lineage whilst putting their own mark on it. Expect some swing, fun, grooves and moods from this exciting new collaboration.

‘O’Higgins plays with quite exceptional fluency and his fund of ideas never runs out’ The Observer
‘Guitar virtuoso makes enticingly vivacious debut.’ – John Fordham The Guardian


Price: £18 / £15 concessions
