“Varied and beautiful, Ensemble Futur is a delight the ears (*****)” – Guitar Techniques Magazine

“that wonderful thing, […] a series of virtuoso performances but it’s all about the vibe and the whole” – Ed O’Brien (Radiohead)

“As a guitarist, [John] possesses extraordinary virtuosity.” – International Guitar Foundation


John Wheatcroft leads a busy double-life as an artist and an educator. He has performed with artists as diverse as Billy Cobham (Miles Davis), Alex Acuña, John Williams, Frank Gambale (Chick Corea), Paco Peña, Biréli Lagrène, Stochelo Rosenberg, Angelo Debarre, Paulus Schäfer, Mozes Rosenberg, Mike Clark and Bill Summers (The Headhunters), Carl Verheyen (Supertramp), Ralph Salmins, Paul Elliott, Keith Carlock and Laurence Cottle. John has toured the world with both Carl Palmer (ELP) and John Jorgenson (Elton John/ Hellecasters) and he is a regular contributor to Guitar Techniques UK, along with contributing numerous lessons for Guitarist UK, Guitar Part (France) and Guitar World (USA).

The impressive roster of top names John has played with is a testament to his impeccable technique, imaginative solos and advanced knowledge in a variety of genres. John writes and performs enchanting music which seamlessly integrates the sound and approach of modern jazz with the timeless Franco-American swing of the legendary Django Reinhardt, producing a sound that is both rooted in the traditions of the genre and vital, forward thinking and highly original.

The Gypsy Jazz Festival of London, curated by violinist and producer Tobie Medland, is a showcase of some of the worlds finest cutting-edge musicians specialising in the style affectionately known as ‘Gypsy Jazz’. The festival has become one of the world’s most prestigious showcases of the distinctly European jazz style. Determined to break stereotypes associated with the style, GJFL promotes modern, cutting edge, diverse and forward-thinking original gypsy jazz and related styles.
