7.30pm WEDNESDAY 16th June 2021


Dave and Judith O’Higgins – tenor saxes, Graham Harvey – piano, Sebastiaan de Krom – drums, Marianne Windham – bass

Tickets are £10 each, please click here to book.

We’ll send you an email to confirm your booking, followed by a link to the performance the day before.

Next up in our monthly livestream collaborations with Guildford Jazz Club - and possibly the last in the series as we start to gear up for re-opening the club in July. Watch this space for further news. Don't miss it, it'll be great.

His’n’Hers pits Mr and Mrs O’Higgins against each other apparently in the manner of the movie, Mr & Mrs Smith… In reality this is a swinging “tough tenors” band in the good humoured tradition of the great Johnny Griffin – Eddie Lockjaw Davis group, who made 9 albums together between 1960 & 1962. But what Griffin and Davis did together was not a competition, however apparently combative. It was collaboration, mutual inspiration, and special because of both the similarity and contrast of the two protagonists.

Judith has a strong tenor sound that evokes the spirit of Dexter Gordon and Clifford Jordan and steps up this time as a featured soloist and composer in this group. She and Dave have written three new originals and play three “greatest hits” from their two tenor book, honed over a few years of occasional gigs with different rhythm sections. They are joined by the super swinging trio of Graham Harvey on piano, Sebastiaan de Krom on drums, and Marianne Windham on bass.

Stay tuned for news of Scarborough Jazz Club’s return to normality in the near future…
