Last April New York-based guitarist Gilad Hekselman played a stunning sell-out solo gig at the Silvershine Jazz Club. In November, he returns to promote his new album Homes, accompanied by a red hot US rhythm section of Joe Martin on bass and Kush Abadey on drums. The gig is on Sunday 22nd November and there will be a Jazz guitar workshop/masterclass beforehand (spaces limited).


Since his arrival in 2004 Gilad has been developed a reputation as one of the very best guitarists in New York. After only a few years this native Israeli has shared the stage with some of the greatest artists in the New York City jazz scene including Chris Potter, Mark Turner, John Scofield, Anat Cohen, Ari Hoenig, Esperanza Spalding, Sam Yahel, Jeff Ballard, Gretchen Parlato, Avishai Cohen, Jeff 'Tain' Watts, Tigran Hamasyan, Aaron Parks and Greg Hutchinson.


Joe Martin and Kush Abadey (a Berklee graduate no less) have also been working regularly with the crème de la crème of US Jazz in venues as prestigious as the Village Vanguard and even (in Kush’s case) the White House!

Here’s what Peter Bacon is saying in the Jazz Breakfast about Gilad and the gig:


a photograph by Paul Hassell

Surfing the internet I came across this wonderful photograph ov Vic Evans, the Blue Notes vocalist. It's a truly wonderful shot that truly captures the Vic we know and love, and looks more like a photo-realist drawing than a photograph - A work of art!

The photographer, Paul Hassell, emailed us the photograph, kindly giving us permission to upload it to our website. You can see more of Paul’s work on his site at
