Tony 'Jazz Dad' Higgins plays extended and exploratory sets spanning jazz, reggae, psych, blues, soul, Americana, disco, afro and Latin.

With a background in music management and promotion, Tony also worked in TV for several years, working on landmark BBC documentaries including 'Jazz Britannia' and 'Seven Ages of Rock'. He produced a live concert film in Los Angeles with multi-Grammy winning legend Emmylou Harris and is a music consultant to several specialist record labels, providing sleeve notes and advising on deep archive reissues.

Most recently, Tony has worked closely with renowned disco/jazz//funk label BBE Music on 'J Jazz', a compilation and reissue series of Japanese jazz rarities from the 70s and 80s.

Expect to hear a greasy rhythm and blues 45 alongside some scorching funk mixed up with roots reggae and super fine jazz, plus much more.
