Press quote from a live gig review at the Duncairn Art Centre in Belfast
` On the evidence of this concert the upcoming second album (Our New Earth) from Sirkis/Bialas IQ should help further establish the quartet as one of the most interesting of contemporary jazz ensembles. With music this uplifting, so sensitively and passionately raided, it`s hard not to be seduced…`
— Ian Patterson, All About Jazz
"European jazz is promised a virtually limitless future if it continues to stick close to its European roots embedded in the subsoil of specific regional cultures, and it continues to be performed by bands as imaginative as the SBIQ. "
Bill Bruford, Liner notes from "Our New Earth",Surrey 2019
