"Trinity Buoy Wharf Live!" presents Jazz Wednesdays, featuring Dave O’Higgins Quartet.
Dave O’Higgins’ saxophone 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 Charlie Parker, Dexter Gordon, John Coltrane, Joe Henderson through to Stanley Turrentine and Michael Brecker. He has relentlessly pursued artistic and sonic exploration and development with a deep respect for the tradition of the music.
“O’Higgins plays with quite exceptional fluency and his fund of ideas never runs out.”
THE DAVE O’HIGGINS QUARTET
This quartet plays some of the most swinging music you will hear today. Straight ahead jazz firmly in the harmonic and melodic tradition, played by the finest UK-based jazz musicians at the peak of their distinguished careers. They will be playing a mixture of new originals and standards from their latest recording, “It’s Always 9.30 in Zog” (JVG Productions 2017)
Appearing with Dave, are:
Geoff Gascoyne on bass: one of the UK's most in demand bass player/composer/arranger/producer/ educators. In a 25 year career he has performed and recorded with Michel Legrand, Georgie Fame, Sting, Van Morrison, Bill Bruford, Peter King, Benny Golson and Jamie Cullum, with whom he was bassist, MD and arranger for 7 years. Geoff has also released 8 CDs as a band leader, produced albums by Jacqui Dankworth and Josh Kyle and teaches at LCCM. Geoff has just released his first iPhone application, Jazz Session Band, a loop based jazz play-along.
Dutch drummer, Sebastiaan de Krom: studied at Berklee School of Music and lives between London & Belgium. He was with Jamie Cullum at the same time as Geoff and there they struck a terrific rapport.
Pianist Graham Harvey: studied music at Denver University, and is currently busy with Stacey Kent. He was MD of the funk group, Incognito, at the time they had their biggest hits (Positivity, Tribes Vibes and Scribes) and has also toured with George Benson.
