    “Anyone familiar with the music of James Asher knows that he can drum up a storm. RETURN OF THE TIGER proves that he hasn’t lost his touch. Featured here are ten tracks that are jam-packed with percussive goodness.
    The groove safari begins with “Gatekeeping”, where Asher’s prime drumming is marbled with the epic resonance of Jason Salmon’s droning didgeridoo. Next up is “Salute to Cuba”, where the music takes a detour into the realm of Afro-Cuban rhythms, with voice and kalimba joining with driving drum beats. “Drum Dialogue” follows, showcasing the intoxicating, wonderfully tribal nature of Asher’s drums, when presented with minimal accompaniment.
    This is just a taste of what RETURN OF THE TIGER has in store, with it’s globe-hopping, foot-stomping odyssey of music, all fueled by the drumming of Asher.”
