As a member of the Blockheads, Gilad has recorded and performed with such as Ian Dury, Robbie Williams, Sinead O'Connor and Paul McCartney. As a bandleader and reed player he has been amazing his listeners with his powerful personal style that combines great bebop artistry and Middle-Eastern roots in a sophisticated, sometimes ironical manner. The Observer says "He creates his own cross cultural idiom." Jazz UK finds his whirlwind approach "dynamic, charismatic and exasperating". This multi-reed talent shows "a seemingly effortless ability to demolish and rebuild any old tune he chooses to play" Time Out. Influenced by Cannonball Adderley's powerful approach on the sax, Gilad's live performances are simply breathtaking and overwhelming.
