All About Jazz.
Similar to the work of Pat Metheny and Antonio Sanchez, Gilad Hekselman goes about his determined development of notes inside the fury. Add Turner on the title track, and the guitarist brings brazen bits of John Scofield-ish jazz-rock sound to the piece. Turner smooths each advance with his calming voice.

Tunes such as the title track This Just In, demonstrate the extraordinary chemistry between Mark Turner and Gilad Hekselman. Their sounds blend well together and both musicians bring so much creativity to the table. Gilad Hekselman takes a powerful, atmospheric solo with a hint of overdrive to back his lines.
That deep connection is evident throughout This Just In, which is the result of Gilad Hekselman’s long history with his sidemen. Martin has played on all of Gilad Hekselman’s records, and their relationship dates back to the guitarist’s arrival in New York from his native Israel in 2004. Gilmore joined for Gilad Hekselman’s second release, Words Unspoken, in 2008, and Turner contributed his immediately recognizable voice to Hearts Wide Open.
