“O’Higgins plays with quite exceptional fluency and his fund of ideas never runs out.” – The Observer
Dave’s saxophone sound is highly personal and recognisable, with a clear sense of melodic development and adventure. He has a wide palette from Charlie Parker, Dexter Gordon, John Coltrane, Joe Henderson through to Stanley Turrentine and Michael Brecker. His quartet is unashamed to swing, drawing on blues and functional harmonies and the great tome of jazz vocabulary. His last CD, ‘It’s Always 9.30 In Zog’ fizzes with life and panache, and the Dave O’Higgins Quartet is one of the UK’s hardest working bands.
