Notes and Editorial Reviews

'Since arriving in New York five years ago, Mr. Hekselman has set himself roughly up in the line of Pat Metheny and Kurt Rosenwinkel, with a warm and clean guitar tone, clear articulation, crazily extended improvisational ideas, and the flexibility to go wherever his bands want...' Ben Ratliff, NEW YORK TIMES Gilad's third album is a masterful exploration of the contrast and coexistence of simplicity and depth. Comprised of simple, singable melodies, these ten new pieces, even with their complex rhythms and harmonies, breathe a certain air of familiarity. An entirely original sound, brilliantly played with precision and great feel by one of the finest groups of jazz artists on the NY jazz scene today.
