Judith produced and played on the critically acclaimed Abstract Truth Big Band recording made under the direction of Jörg Achim Keller at the famous Abbey Road Studio in 2015.
With Covid-19 lockdown looming in March 2020, a recording session for "His 'n' Hers" was organised just in time, featuring a two-tenor frontline with husband Dave O'Higgins, joined by the super swinging dream team trio of Graham Harvey (piano), Jeremy Brown (bass) and Josh Morrison (drums).
Described by various internationally renowned saxophonists as evoking the feel of Dexter Gordon and sound of Clifford Jordan, Judith is undoubtedly the best forensic pathologist jazz saxophonist living in London!
