His longest and most memorable job was at the London House, where he led the house trio for twelve years, playing opposite the biggest jazz stars of the 50's and 60's, including Stan Getz, Oscar Peterson, Dizzy Gillespie, Errol Garner, George Shearing, Cannonball Adderley, Bill Evans and many others.

”...Higgins' style is relaxed and swinging, with an easy delicacy about it that reminds one of Hank Jones or Bill Evans.” —Herb Nolan, Down Beat

“...Brilliant, fully developed piano sets... plays piano with a master's touch... a dazzling dynamic range.” —Sam Lesner, Chicago Daily News

“...Hearing this piano for the first time, you would say 'good taste and a sensitive touch.' Like Hank Jones and the late Nat 'King' Cole, he's an orderly player whether romping with the blues or delineating a tender waltz.” —Owen Cordle, Raleigh News And Observer
