Rob Luft Band
Having won the 2016 Kenny Wheeler Jazz Prize in association with The Royal Academy of Music, Rob formed this project in order to record an album of his original compositions for Edition Records. Opting for the format of a power trio, the rhythm section consists of rising stars Corrie Dick and Tom McCredie, and the album features an expanded quintet line-up with the addition of Joe Wright (tenor saxophone) and Joe Webb (Hammond organ). Drawing influence from artists such as Ali Farka Toure, Bill Frisell, and Radiohead, the band can be seen as Britain’s answer to The Wayne Krantz Trio! Their debut album is released on 28 July 2017 and will be launched on 23 September 2017, at King’s Place, London.
