Excerpt from the Tokyo Jazz Festival September 2012

Gilad Hekselman, guitar

Joe Martin on double bass
, Marcus Gilmore on drums
and guest Mark Turner on saxophone

This Just In, Gilad Hekselman's fourth album, is by far the most exciting and memorable of all his projects to date. Its imaginative concept, coupled with the stellar musicianship this group is known for, creates a lasting impression. The album plays out like a news broadcast, peppered with short, improvised news breaks that each test the boundaries of style and genre in their own way. Together the tracks shed light on the many musical styles that have influenced Gilad over the years. Jazz, rock, folk, African, Israeli and North Indian classical music converge in this beautiful collection of songs, creating a powerfully diverse and unique album that features Gilad’s harmonic and rhythmic mastery while showcasing the melodic virtuosity that has become his trademark. Joe Martin on bass and Marcus Gilmore on drums, along with guest saxophonist Mark Turner on three tracks, offer up the highest levels of musical taste and ability, painting a dynamic backdrop that allows Hekselman to truly shine. 

"The feeling in a small club quickly grows intense when GILAD HEKSELMAN, an Israeli jazz guitarist in his mid-20s, steps up to improvise. 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...".
