I've listened to Gilad a lot over the past several years since he came on the International scene...or the UK scene anyway....and really enjoy his playing. His performance of Nature Boy is probably my favorite cover of that standard. In this piece of music he plays with a tone that is so nasal it sounds like he's playing a Shenai or some instrument other than an alto sax. I know his tone and sound has nothing to do with the orientalized scales he is playing nor with his setup because part way into the number his sound goes back to his normal tonality. So WTH is he doing to get it? Is he biting, squeezing really hard, sucking the mpc in farther down his gullet, doing nasal breathing or what. Beats me, but I think it's great for the music he is playing here. Anyone know?
