Kirk Kadish

Still Here, the debut release by Kadish, Gagan & Bartlit, won the 2017 prize for Best Jazz CD at the recent New Mexico Music Awards. Hear their magic on Saturday, July 8, when the group performs at Gig Performance Space (1808 Second St.). The members of the KGB trio — pianist and composer Kirk Kadish, bassist and composer Jon Gagan, and drummer John Bartlit — have an acquaintance going back to 1980, and their chemistry is obvious on this excellent album. Tickets are $20 at the door for this 7:30 p.m. concert. See www.gigsantafe.com for more information.
