Don’t miss this unique opportunity to hear two of the most talked-about young jazz musicians in one concert. Camila Meza possesses an innate and rare combination of qualities as a singer and guitar player who also writes her own songs and arrangements. She has a highly expressive voice with a unique timbre and way of phrasing, while her improvisations and accompaniment on the guitar are equally touching and soulful. Her Chilean roots and profound connection to jazz give her music a very special and appealing sound. Gilad Hekselman arrived in New York from Israel in 2004, and proceeded to tear the place up, guitaristically speaking. In short order, he was performing with many of the top artists in jazz, among them Chris Potter, Mark Turner, John Scofield, Esperanza Spalding, and many others. Backed by a rhythm section of heavyweights that includes drummer Billy Hart, pianist Ethan Iverson, and bassist Linda Oh, Meza and Hekselman will undoubtedly deliver the kind of performance you can only hear at SJW. ...
