Slovakian born drummer Marek Dorcik is swiftly gaining a reputation as a sought after professional drummer on the international jazz scene, working with some of the UK’s leading jazz artists including Mike Walker, Alan Barnes, Stuart McCallum, Alice Zawadzki (as part of the Moss Project) and Matthew Halsall of Gogo Penguin and Gondwana Records.

Spercasa, (a Slovakian play on words with ‘Sperk’ meaning ‘jewel’ and ‘Percasa’ resembling the word ‘percussion’) consists of Marek Dorcik on drums, George Crowley on sax, Miguel Gorodi on trumpet and flugelhorn, Tom Hewson on piano and Mick Coady on double bass. Together they are an outstanding quintet of prominent musicians, each with their own individual contributions to the UK jazz landscape. The synergy between them is apparent on About Time, with each protagonist allowing the other to express themselves freely through improvisation, creating space at exactly the right time, while showcasing each individual’s creative flair when it matters most.
