Rob Luft is a rising star - an award-winning 25-year-old jazz guitarist from London whose virtuosity has been compared to that of legends John McLaughlin, Al Di Meola, Paco De Lucia and Kurt Rosenwinkel.
Rob Luft is a superstar in the making – a virtuoso, a band-leader, a composer of vibrant, original music and a captivating communicator.
There are very few debut albums that can create such an impact and launch an artist into the domestic and European scene as Rob Luft’s 2017 debut ‘Riser’ managed to do. On the back of winning the Kenny Wheeler Jazz Prize, London based Luft hurtled onto the scene with an album of originals and an instrumental sound so strong it’s hard to believe a 23-year-old had produced it. Both his guitar playing and compositional voice were unmistakably his own, the camaraderie and band interplay deeply developed. But it was the blend of Rob’s joy in music-making, his humility and humanity in working with other musicians and his natural warmth as a communicator that saw him quickly become one of the most talked-about, in-demand instrumentalists to emerge from the UK in a long time. With his second album Life Is The Dancer Rob continued with the same band, a new set of originals and with that undeniably warm and joyous sound we’d come to expect from him.Artist’s Website
