Rob Luft is an award-winning 28-year-old jazz guitarist from London whose virtuosity has been compared to that of six-string legends John McLaughlin, Al Di Meola & Paco De Lucia. He was the recipient of the 2016 Kenny Wheeler Prize from the Royal Academy of Music, and he also received the 2nd Prize in the 2016 Montreux Jazz Guitar Competition at Montreux Jazz Festival.
His debut album, “Riser”, was released on Edition Records in 2017 to widespread acclaim from the European jazz media. John Fordham wrote in The Guardian that it’s a “very sophisticated debut, but given Luft’s old-soul achievements since his early teens, we should have heard it coming”.
The Rob Luft Quartet is a London-based group playing Luft’s original compositions from Rob’s first two critically acclaimed albums on Edition Records, “Riser” (2017) & “Life is the Dancer” (2020). The project brings together four of the finest young jazz musicians in the UK, each drawing upon their own eclectic influences, adding many colours to the project: Celtic folk, West African high-life, indie rock and much more.
