Gilad Atzmon's new Album and TV special

Gilad Atzmon's latest album is out. It's absolutely brilliant. But, please, don't take my word for it, see him play it live in the Special that was aired this week on Sky Channel. Divided into three parts, it shifts from interview segments and The Orient House Ensemble performing some tracks from Refuge. See for yourself what all the fuss is about! This is the first part of the three, the following two are: Gilad Atzmon and the OHE Presenting Refuge (pt2) and
