Asaf Sirkis

Kevin LeGendre presents conversation and a session performed at Swansea Jazzland from drummer, percussionist and composer Asaf Sirkis's new trio, featuring Greek guitarist Tassos Spiliotopoulos and Israeli bassist Yaron Stavi.

Sirkis is seen as one of the most in demand musicians around: his international career started in the late 1990s in Israel and from 2000 onwards he formed musical relationships with jazz names such as Gilad Atzmon, Mark Latimer, Phil Robson, Dave Leibman and Kenny Wheeler. He has also performed as part of renowned guitarist Larry Coryell's trio.
