Vinyl LP pressing. 2010 album from the pianist/composer. Perpetual shows a different side to Gideon Van Gelder, the keys player you may already know from tracks like 'Touch' on Soul Jazz conjurer Jose James' LP Black Magik, and championed by the likes of Gilles Peterson. Gideon's influences sprawl between Brazilian guitar virtuoso Toninho Horta and pioneering Jazz composer Andrew Hill, as well as tutors of his, Vijay Iyer and Craig Taborn, and his mum, whose melodies he likes to work into his own compositions. Gideon knows how to tap into the heart strings, pulling intervals and transitions out of the piano like an expert osteopath.
