d In aid of Calstock Arts (registered charity 1162250)

A welcome return to Calstock Arts for Dave O’Higgins, an established giant of the UK jazz scene, joined by young firebrand guitarist Rob Luft along with organist Scott Flanigan and drummer Rod Youngs.

Featuring Thelonious Monk compositions (expect some rarely heard ones!) and tunes played by John Coltrane, especially his choice of standards and various collaborations in the 1950s.

Both Monk and Trane were “modernists”, but also steeped in swing and the rich tradition of the beboppers. Dave and Rob intend to respect this lineage whilst putting their own mark on it. Expect some swing, fun, grooves and moods from this exciting new collaboration.

Tickets: £14 advance, £15 door. £1 reduction for Friends of Calstock Arts, £8 under 21s and students with ID.
Doors and bar 7.00pm, start time 8.00pm
