Sirkis / Bialas International Quartet
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 Coryell, John Abercrombie & the Asaf Sirkis
Trio) and Polish vocalist/composer extraordinaire Sylwia Bialas.
The quartet features London based, Scottish bassist Kevin Glasgow, and the acclaimed
Frank Harrison on piano and keyboards (UK).
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 electro-acoustic jazz with an ethnic touch and some uncommonly used instruments and sound effects.
The quartet`s latest album - Come To Me was released in 2014 at the London Jazz Festival
and the band has been touring in the UK and Europe since
"Sylwia Bialas‘ poetic lyric and sensual sounding language underpinned by Asaf Sirkis‘ sensitive musical setting created a particular mood from the off. Come To Me developed into a fine example of Bialas’ vocal technique which never became clichéd, out-and-out scat but integrated beautifully into the ensemble as an instrument"; Gary Corbett The Jazz Breakfast
"Come To Me, is a true tour-de-force of musicianship and innovation...this is what music is all about: colourful, infinitely creative, and full of heartfelt, emotional intensity. Each musician is such a talent unto themselves that when playing together you cannot help but feel completely transported to a better place while you listen. This album is truly magnificent! ...a musical experience without peer! COME TO ME IS A MASTERPIECE! " John Prichard, Jazz-Rock.com (USA) *****
