"The feeling in a small club quickly grows intense when GILAD HEKSELMAN... steps up to improvise. Since arriving in New York... 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

Gilad Hekselman has quickly developed a reputation as one of the most promising guitarists in New York since his arrival in 2004. After only a few years, this native Israeli has shared the stage with some of the greatest artists in the New York City jazz scene including Chris Potter, Mark Turner, Ben Wendel, Eric Harland, John Scofield, Anat Cohen, Ari Hoenig, Esperanza Spalding, Jeff Ballard, Gretchen Parlato, Avishai Cohen, Jeff ‘Tain’ Watts, Tigran Hamasyan, Aaron Parks and Greg Hutchinson.

Gilad has been performing in all the major jazz clubs in New York including The Village Vanguard, The Jazz Standard, Blue Note, Smalls and more. He has also been touring the world constantly with his own bands, gHex Trio & ZuperOctave, and as a sidemen with some of the most prominent musicians on the scene.

He has released multiple albums as a bandleader to critical acclaim including SplitLife (Smalls Records) Words Unspoken (LateSet Records) Hearts Wide Open, This Just In & Homes (Harmonia Mundi). His new record Ask for Chaos was released in September 2018 on his new label Hexophonic Music in collaboration with Motema Music.
