Cambridge Modern Jazz: Dave O’Higgins & Rob Luft Quintet ‘Pluto’ Album Launch

Thursday 25th May @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

Dave o'higgins and rob luft

Dave O’Higgins – tenor sax
Rob Luft – guitar
Ross Stanley – piano
Misha Mullov-Abbado – d.bass
Rod Youngs – drums

Dave O’Higgins and Rob Luft present their second co-led recording, three years after O’Higgins & Luft Play Monk & Trane. Where the first album clearly did what it says on the tin.  Pluto, as the title suggests, comes from another place. Seven of the nine numbers are original compositions by each band leader, and the remaining two pieces are Monk and Coltrane hits that evolved naturally on the road during a 50 date European tour in 2019.

This is straight-ahead modern jazz in the African-American tradition.
