Gilad Hekselman: Ask For Chaos

Read "Ask For Chaos" reviewed by Gareth Thompson

Be careful what you ask for if chaos is on the wish list. Israeli-born guitarist Gilad Hekselman invited disorder on this, his sixth outing, by employing two distinct backing bands.

Read "Palmares Fantasy" reviewed by Chris May

Palmares Fantasy is the fifth album to be released by British saxophonist Sean Khan under his own name or as the leader of SK Radicals.
