A rare performance in the UK: Eyal Maoz and Asaf Sirkis share a long history of collaboration. Beginning at
elementary school in their hometown of Rehovot, Israel, their friendship and musical association has continued through many years, and they have since become main stays of the creative music scenes of London (Sirkis) and New York (Maoz). A huge plethora of influences and experiences comes to creative fruition in their duo. Combining composition and improvisation, their intuitive rapport and mutual understanding guides the way through a musical conversation full of unexpected twists and turns and sudden bursts of colour and energy, yet never losing its emotional depth and logical coherence. The Maoz-Sirkis duet brings straight-up experimentation to the traditional concept of jazz, blending both composed and improvised music to create an interesting and inventive whole.

"they raise the bar a few notches for the avant
style, guitar-drums format." -Glenn Astarita , All About
Jazz, October 2009.
