The Sirkis/Bialas International Quartet is a fresh, new collaboration between \israeli UK-resident drummer/composer Asaf Sirkis and the Polish vocalist/composer extraordinaire Sylwia Bialas. The band also features Scottish bassist Kevin Glasgow and the acclaimed pianist Frank Harrison. "The music is highly emotional, with long-limbed melodies that unfold slowly, encircling the sound stage. Time stops for the duration as the music uncovers multiple layers of meaning. The Sirkis/Bialas International Quartet has a sound all its own, despite having influences from all over the world. This sound is one of beauty, love and hope...â€œâ€ â€” Budd Kopman, All About Jazz (USA) ***** 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 â€“ 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 color electro-acoustic jazz with an ethnic touch and some uncommonly used instruments and sound effects.The quartet`s latest album â€žCome To Meâ€œ was released 2014 at the London Jazz Festival and the band has been touring in the UK and Europe since.
