The Sirkis/Bialas International Quartet is a fresh new collaboration between Israeli UK-resident drummer/composer Asaf Sirkis, known for his work with the Lighthouse trio (ACT), Gilad Atzmon, Tim Garland, Larry Corryel, John Abercrombie & the Asaf Sirkis trio, and Polish vocalist / composer extraordinaire Sylwia Bialas.
The quartet features the dynamic bassist Kevin Glasgow, and the acclaimed Frank Harrison on piano and keyboards. With an emphasis on band interaction and sheer joy of playing, this band celebrates music from both collaborators, covering a wide range of influences such as contemporary classical music, Polish folk, South Indian & Middle Eastern musics as well as a wide range of dynamics – from the most delicate ballad all the way to high-energy electric virtuoso lines and everything in between.
Expect soulful melodies, aerospheric sounds with strong grooves, a full colour electroacoustic jazz with an ethnic touch and some uncommonly used instruments and sound effects. The quartet has recently been touring the UK and recording their new album 'Come to me'. The album was officially released at the London Jazz Festival in November 2014.
"Come To Me" is truly magnificent! …a musical experience without peer!"
