Gilad Hekselman Trio @ Bar Next Door

Justin Brown, Matt Penman, Gilad Hekselman

With Justin Brown on drums and Matt Penman on bass. They played standards such as Good Bait, How Deep Is the Ocean, Countdown, We’ll Be Together Again and one of Gilad’s originals. I liked the show actually, especially Justin Brown’s energy in it. Otherwise, there is something rhythmically complicated in what Gilad does, which is still confusing to me.  Ari Hoenig demonstrates these things in his book –  “Intro to polyrhythms, contracting and expanding time within the form”. As a listener I sometimes I feel it breaks the flow of rhythm for me even though as a concept I’m sure this is one of the most fascinating “new” things out there, which definitely should interest a lot of musicians.
