Dave O'Higgins Quartet
Dave O’Higgins - tenor and soprano saxes / Graham Harvey - piano / Geoff Gascoyne – bass /
Sebastiaan de Krom - drums
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 and Joe Henderson through to Stanley Turrentine and Michael 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 with Sebastiaan de Krom (drums), Geoff Gascoyne (bass) and Graham Harvey (piano) - 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.
“One of the most vigorously compelling tenor players on the UK scene, and on this wholly enjoyable, powerful album, he nods to the great saxophonists – Charlie Parker, Coltrane, Dexter Gordon chief among them – who so clearly influenced him, without unduly compromising his individuality; In the Zone is archetypal O'Higgins: unpretentious, accessible, no-nonsense acoustic jazz addressed with skilfully controlled energy.”
Chris Parker reviewing In the Zone (Jazzizit)
“A stunning player in the neo-bop vein, with an apparently effortless flow of coherent ideas, beautiful time and a highly developed harmonic sense.” Jazz Guide
'Dazzling post-bop tenorist with a magnificent range and a dramatic turn of phrase'. The Guardian.
