Rob Luft Band
LONDON Omnibus Theatre
1 Clapham Common North Side
The word is out on Rob Luft – hotly tipped by The Times to “achieve great things” , the award-winning young guitarist plays from his debut Edition CD Riser.
A winner of the prestigious Kenny Wheeler Music Prize as well as placing second in The 2016 Montreux Jazz Guitar Competition, tonight he presents the music from 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.
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.'
