Espen Eriksen Trio: End Of Summer

Read "End Of Summer" reviewed by Gareth Thompson

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. And there is fun to be had in spotting discrepancies between the combos. Representing the more avant elements are Zuperoctave, whilst a touch of trad comes ...
