Luftabbamic is a super-group comprising of internationally-renowned Rob Luft, Kenny Wheeler Prize winner Misha Mullov-Abbado and one of Europe's busiest touring drummers Marc Michel. Here they play compositions written together as a trio and individually, as well as their favourite standards. A very special offering. Misha Mullov-Abbado is a musician who combines great imagination, raw talent tempered by a clear vision, and a colourful character. Son of the Italian conductor Claudio Abbado and Russian violinist Viktoria Mullova, Misha showed early musical promise but was keen to follow his own path and became intent on developing a career in jazz. A 2014 City of Music Foundation Artist, an in-demand bass player, composer and arranger based in London and winner of the 2014 Kenny Wheeler Jazz Prize, Misha Mullov-Abbado has performed at many of London's top jazz gigs including the Vortex, 606 Club, Pizza Express and Royal Albert Hall's Elgar Room (as part of the BBC Proms Late series), as well as venues throughout the UK and Europe. Misha is an experienced composer: he won the 2014 Dankworth Prize for jazz composition and writes for a variety of jazz groups.
