About the artist
This will be part of a substantial 40-plus date autumn tour promoting their new CD O’Higgins and Luft play Monk and Trane (Ubuntu Music 2019).
For established giant of the UK jazz scene, O’Higgins, this will be his 21st CD as leader. For young “firebrand” Rob Luft, this will be his 2nd. They will be leading a quartet with organist, Liam Dunachie and drummer, Dave Ingamells.
Their repertoire will be made up of Thelonious Monk compositions (expect some rarely heard ones!) and tunes played by John Coltrane with especial 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 linage whilst putting their own mark on it. Expect some swing, fun, grooves and mood from this exciting new collaboration.
