Gilad Hekselman Brings His Guitar to Jazz Standard
The Gilad Hekselman Trio will perform at Jazz Standard tonight. For this performance, the jazz guitarist’s group will also feature saxophonist Mark Turner.
The NY Times declared that “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, speed when he needs it, an advanced understanding of harmony, and the flexibility to go wherever his bands want.”
Gilad Hekselman has performed as a sideman with artists ranging from Chris Potter and Anat Cohen to Esperanza Spalding. It will be cool to see him take the stage as a bandleader here in NoMad at Jazz Standard.
The Gilad Hekselman Trio featuring Mark Turner will perform tonight at 7:30 and 9:30. Each set is $20.
