“Since arriving in London from Israel at the end of the end of the ’90s, Asaf Sirkis has earned a reputation as one of the world’s premier drummers”
– Ian Patterson, All About Jazz
“Israeli-born drummer and London resident Asaf Sirkis unleashes with thunderous abandon on this hard-hitting fusion offering that harkens back to a time before the genre became codified, diluted and reduced to a critical joke”.
– Bill Milkowski, Jazz Times (USA)
‘The more subtle virtuosity of a Bill Stewart or a Jack DeJohnette is rooted in the subsoil of the music from which it came: it’s something other than athletics. In that context, some really interesting young players to watch are Mark Guiliana from Avishai Cohen’s group in the USA, and Martin France and Asaf Sirkis in the UK.’
