Award-winning London-based guitarist Rob Luft is a young, incredibly talented artist and musician with a strong vision.
A winner of the prestigious Kenny Wheeler Music Prize as well as placing second in The 2016 Montreux Jazz Guitar Competition, tonight he launches his debut album Riser on Edition Records with talented cohort bassist Tom McCredie, Joe Wright (tenor saxophone), Joe Webb on keyboards and drummer Corrie Dick.
Predicted by the Times, ‘to achieve great things in the future’, and identified as having ‘boundless technique’ by Lee Ritenour, we can certainly agree with John Fordham writing in the Guardian that ‘guitarist Rob Luft is a player the jazz scene will certainly be hearing plenty from.’
Rob Luft will release his debut album ‘Riser’ on 21st July 2017.
