Gilad Hekselman Trio (IL/CA/US)

International guitartrio i verdensklasse



Denne sommer gæster den fantastiske guitarist Gilad Hekselman igen Danmark, og med sig har han sin trio bestående af Rick Rosato og Jonathan Pinson, der uden tvivl vil levere en medrivende koncert og en uforglemmelig oplevelse for publikum.



De tre musikere har alle et imponerende CV og har spillet med stjernemusikere som Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Aaron Parks og John Scofield.



Siden Gilad Hekselman var JazzDanmarks "Artist in residence" i 2015, hvor han berigede danske musikere og albumudgivelser, har han udviklet sin melodiske virtuositet og verdensklasseimprovisation til nye niveauer.



Hans spil er lyrisk og følsomt med en moden, varm tone og stor musikalitet. Han har spillet på de fleste prestigefyldte amerikanske jazzklubber og turneret over hele verden, blandt andet på jazzfestivaler som Montreal, North Sea og San Francisco. Han har fire udgivelser i eget navn bag sig, og det femte album – som vi formentlig får smagsprøver på – udgives i efteråret 2018.



Gilad Hekselman blev født i Israel i 1983, hvor han studerede klassisk klaver, fra han var seks år, og begyndte at studere guitar i en alder af ni år. Som 12-årig spillede han regelmæssigt med et band i et ugentligt børne tv-show. Han gik på den prestigefyldte "Thelma Yellin School of Arts" og modtog et stipendium til studier i udlandet og til undervisning på "The New School i New York", hvor han afsluttede en BFA-grad i scenekunst i 2008. Gilad Hekselman udviklede hurtigt et ry som en af de mest lovende jazzguitarister i New York ved sin ankomst i 2004. I løbet af få år indtog han scenen med nogle af de største og mest prominente musikere fra den hæsblæsende New Yorker-scene, herunder Chris Potter, John Scofield, Jeff Ballard, Aaron Parks og Jeff Tain Watts.

World-class international guitar trio



This summer, the fantastic guitarist Gilad Hekselman returns to Denmark, bringing his trio consisting of Rick Rosato and Jonathan Pinson, who, without doubt, will deliver a riveting concert and unforgettable experience.



The three musicians have impressive resumes and have played with stars such as Waynes Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Aaron Parks, and John Scofield.



Since Gilad Hekselman was JazzDanmark's 'Artist in Residence' in 2015, where he enriched Danish musicians and album releases, he has developed his virtuosity and world-class improv to new heights.



His style is lyrical and sensitive with a mature, warm tone and a rich musicality. He has performed at most of the prestigious American jazz clubs and toured all over the world, including jazz festivals such as Montreal, North Sea, and San Fransisco. He as released four albums as a solo artist with the fifth, from which he will hopefully play some tunes, set to release fall 2018.



Gilad Hekselman was born in Israel in 1983, where he studied classical piano since age six and guitar since age nine. As a 12-year-old, he regularly performed with a band in a weekly TV show. He attended the prestigious 'Thelma Yellin School of Arts' and received scholarships to study abroad and attend classes at 'The New School in New York', where he graduated with a BFA degree in performing arts in 2008. Gilad Hekselman quickly developed a reputation for being one of the most promising jazz guitarists in New York after his arrival in 2004. Over the course of a few years, he took to the stage with some of the biggest and most prominent musicians from the vibrant New York scene, including Chris Potter, John Scofield, Jeff Ballard, Aaron Parks, and Jeff Tain Watts.  



The concert is supported by Embassy of Israel.
