    ▶️ The new album SOLAR FLASH celebrates music from drummer Asaf Sirkis and a stellar line-up consisting of British keyboardist extraordinaire Gary Husband, Scottish bassist Kevin Glasgow, Israeli-born Asaf Sirkis on drums with special guests: Polish vocalist Sylwia Bialas and U.S.A-born guitarist Mark Wingfield.

    ▶️ Expect some haunting ‘outer space’ electro-acoustic sounds with a wide range of dynamics ranging from Erik-Satie-like gentle ballads all the way to high energy electric Prog-jazz-improv and everything in between.

    In the words of Mr. Robert Wyatt:

    ▶️ “I’ve known Asaf’s gifts for years, certainly enough to say that as far as I can see, there’s NOTHING he can’t do when he puts his mind to it.
    Of course on this innovative record his kit skills just keep expanding but what really gets to me here are his ethereal, haunting compositions, which take the soloists into uncharted territories, guiding them but allowing them freedom to dip and dive through their solos in their own sympathetically idiosyncratic ways.
    So this is a remarkable recording which, with its very distinct individual voices, has nevertheless the feel of a single living organism: Quite a combination!”

about

This track is dedicated to and inspired by drummer Eric Kamau Grávátt.

Grávátt, mostly known for his early work with Weather Report as well aswith McCoy Tyner, plays like no one else! With his unique energy, definition and laser sharp focus, he had left an undeniable impression on generations of drummers.

I hope that this piece captures some of his tribal energy, mystique, and the explorative sounds of the 1970s.
This piece is enhanced by the voice of Sun Ra - the visionary pianist and composer (courtesy of the Sun Ra archive).
