Herts Jazz Club – Dave O’Higgins Quartet
Dave O’Higgins – Tenor/Soprano, Rob Barron – Piano, Geoff Gascoyne – Bass, Sebastiaan DeKrom – Drums
Dave’s tenor and soprano sax sounds are highly personal and recognisable, with a clear sense of melodic development and adventure. A popular performer with the public, with an excellent sense of pacing and presentation, he has a wide palette from Parker, Gordon, Coltrane, Henderson through to Turrentine and Brecker. He has relentlessly pursued artistic and sonic exploration, and enjoys the learning process which is a constant advancing flow. The Dave O’Higgins Quartet has been together for 5 years now, a band that is unashamed to swing and draw on blues and functional harmonies and the great tome of jazz vocabulary, eschewing fads and fusions.
