Dave O’Higgins & Rob Luft
Collaboration featuring tenor saxophonist Dave O’Higgins and guitarist Rob Luft, augmented by organist Scott Flanigan and drummer Rod Youngs. The album “Play Monk & Trane” (Ubuntu Music, 2019) offers commendably fresh takes on material associated with Thelonious Monk and John Coltrane.
"Despite the familiarity of much of the material Luft and O’Higgins deliver on their promise and very much make their own mark on it. The arrangements are fresh and imaginative and the playing superb."
