Listen to Asaf Sirkis live!

The excellent Asaf Sirkis Trio played a gig at the Swansea Jazzland club recently. For those of you that missed it you can now listen over at BBC iPlayer - just click here. The gig was recorded for 'Jazz Line Up' on BBC R3 (hosted by Kevin LeGendre and produced by Keith Loxham). You need to think fast though, the link will only be available until this Sunday (31 May).

Asaf presents the first of two video guest lessons on the Rhythm CD in the June 2009 issue of Rhythm. His next lesson will be available in the forthcoming July issue, on sale 9 June. If you can't bear to miss out then why not subscribe?

If you fancy catching the Trio live their next London gig (featuring Tassos Spiliotopoulos, guitar, Patrick Bettison, bass, and Asaf on drums) will take place on Thursday, 4 June at The Spice Of Life, 6 Moor Street, London, W1D 5NA.
