Dave O’Higgins inspired by the 3 tenors of Stanley Turrentine, Hank Mobley & Dexter Gordon.

Having been a popular figure on the jazz scene for over 30 years and with 19 albums as leader, there could not be anyone better on tenor saxophone than Dave O’Higgins to give voice to these great 3 Tenors.


Stanley Turrentine was renowned for his distinctive, thick tone and a style that showed his early grounding in the blues.

Hank Mobley, once described as “the middle weight champion of the tenor saxophone” had a different, but most distinctive laid back, subtle & melodic style.

Dexter Gordon had a large, spacious tone & frame, (he was over 6’6”) pioneering playing behind the beat & regularly inserting improvised musical quotes.

Swing, humour and poignancy…a jazz joy” MOJO

A long-overdue reclamation of the beloved comic actor as an individual and undervalued British musician, with loving interpretations of Dudley’s witty and affecting 1960s jazz and soundtrack music. Rated “a vibrant and moving homage” by US jazz magazine Downbeat, the show features Chris Ingham (piano), Paul Higgs (trumpet), Geoff Gascoyne (bass) and George Double (drums).
