Gilad band

In November we see the return of the red hot New York based Gilad Hekselman Trio featuring Kush Abadey (ex-Berklee) on drums and Joe Martin on bass.


Since his arrival in 2004 Israeli born Gilad has developed a reputation as one of the very best guitarists in New York. In just a few years he has shared the stage with some of the greatest artists on 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 and Kush 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!

or from for £12 (plus 75p booking fee @ billetto)


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
