“Luft’s style is a garden of heavenly delights”Chris May, All About Jazz 

“So young and so talented!” – Jamie Cullum, BBC Radio 2 (UK) 

Rob Luft is one of the UK’s most prominent and talented young contemporary jazz guitarists.

The award-winning 26-year-old jazz guitarist from London has been compared to that of six-string legends John McLaughlin, Al Di Meola & Paco De Lucia. 

For his Manchester performance his quintet will perform original compositions from his first two albums on Edition Records, Riser and Life is the Dancer. The works draw upon the band’s own musical influences, including Celtic folk, West African high-life, indie rock and various strands of contemporary jazz. 

In May 2019 Rob was selected as BBC New Generation Jazz Artist 2019-2021, an accolade granted to “some of the world’s most exceptional young musicians” (Emma Bloxham, Editor, BBC Radio 3).
