An exclusive Turner Sims double bill featuring two winners of the prestigious Kenny Wheeler award, named in honour of the legendary composer and trumpeter.
Tom Barford is a 21 year old saxophonist and composer based in London. He began studying at the Royal Academy of Music with a scholarship in 2013. Tom has performed alongside Alex Garnett, Nigel Hitchcock, Greame Blevins and Steve Fishwick as part of the London Super Sax Project, plays regularly in Barry Green’s Sextet and co-leads a quartet with Alex Hitchcock, James Maddren and Ferg Ireland as well as making appearances in Gareth Lockrane’s big band.
Rob Luft is an award-winning, 24-year-old guitarist with virtuosity which has been compared to that of six-string legends Al di Meola, John McLaughlin and Paco de Lucia. Predicted by The Times ‘to achieve great things in the future’, Rob won the 2016 Kenny Wheeler Jazz Prize and has just released his debut album to universal acclaim.
Ticket price includes complimentary Edition Records compilation CD
