Gilad Hekselman Trio at Wharf Chambers Leeds

After a packed show at Wharf Chambers last year, Gilad Hekselman is back to perform his only Northern date and this time he is joined by his new trio AND saxophone powerhouse Mark Turner!

This is a rare chance to see four giants from the NYC jazz scene perform up close in an intimate setting and if last year's show is any indication, this will sell out fast.

Gilad Hekselman (Guitar)
Rick Rosato (Double Bass)
Jonathan Pinson (Drums)
+ Mark Turner (Tenor Saxophone)

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…
— Ben Ratliff, New York Times

I think Mark Turner is one of the most important players that has come along in the last 20 years, easily the most influential. He never seems to have any doubt about what hes doing.
– Ravi Coltrane

Gilad Hekselman is one of the most talented and well respected guitar players in the world today. Gilad first gained recognition after winning the 2005 Montreux jazz guitar competition. He has played, performed and recorded with artists such as Mark Turner, Jeff Ballard, Esperanza Spalding, Jeff 'Tain' Watts, Avishai Cohen and John Scofield.

Wharf Chambers, 23-25 Wharf Street, Leeds, LS2 7EQ

Gilad is also taking a masterclass @Leeds College of Music from 2pm
