“O’Higgins plays with quite exceptional fluency and his fund of ideas never runs out.”
“Patient and cinematic. The trio are really sitting in a beautiful space that is
vast and full of colour.”
“A stunning player in the neo-bop vein, with an apparently effortless flow of coherent ideas,
beautiful time and a highly developed harmonic sense.”
