Kingston University continues the next Jazz First Tuesday lunchtime session with the Sirkis/Bialas International Quartet, 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, Asaf Sirkis Trio, and Polish vocalist/composer extraordinaire Sylwia Bialas. The quartet features London based up and coming bassist Cono Chaplin, and the acclaimed Frank Harrison on piano and keyboards (UK).
With an emphasis on band interaction and the 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 music as well as a wide range of dynamics - from the most delicate ballad 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.
