O'Higgins & Luft Play Monk and Trane O'Higgins & Luft Play Monk and Trane

This gig marks an exciting new collaboration between saxophonist Dave O'Higgins and guitarist Rob Luft. Dave is an established star of the British jazz scene and Rob is an award-winning musician from London who has been described as one of the UK's most prominent and talented young contemporary jazz guitarists. A joint love of the music of John Coltrane and Thelonious Monk sparked a musical chemistry which has resulted in a new album and a major UK tour of which tonight's gig is a part of. They are joined by Irish organ player Scott Flanigan and American drummer Rod Youngs.
