Birmingham Jazz presents

Another night of quality jazz awaits.

One of the most promising jazz guitarists in the country will be performing at 1,000 Trades this evening.

Rob Luft is a rising star – an award-winning 25-year-old jazz guitarist whose virtuosity has been compared to that of legends John McLaughlin & Al Di Meola. Rob Luft is a superstar in the making – a virtuoso, a band-leader, a composer of vibrant, original music and a captivating communicator.

On the back of winning the Kenny Wheeler Jazz Prize, London-based Luft burst onto the scene in 2002 with an album of originals and an instrumental sound so strong it’s hard to believe a 23-year-old had produced it. Both his guitar playing and compositional voice were unmistakably his own, the camaraderie and band interplay deeply developed.

Rob Luft and his Quintet will be performing at 7.45pm on Friday 17th September at 1,000 Trades, 16 Frederick Street, Jewellery Quarter B1 3HE

Tickets: Advance – standard £12.50, members £10, students £5 (On the door £15/£12/£5).
