Gilad Hekselman's new project, ZuperOctave, is a bass-less trio featuring Aaron Parks on synths, rhodes and piano and Kendrick Scott on drums and pads. It's a retro-futuristic sound — imagining the sound if the future of jazz as it was perceived in the past. Hekselman and Parks take on the bass part, and sometimes just leave that space open. In terms of passion for melody and rhythm, this is no different than Gilad's music to this point. But, in most other aspects, he presents a brand new sound here.
