Jazz at St Peter's: Brad Kang


Modern, New York-influenced jazz originals from Kang's new EP Farewell for Now

Farewell For Now is a culmination of the five years Brad spent in Denton, Texas. The compositions draw from the modern jazz music of New York City as well as music of Sky Window, a jazz-rock-electronic fusion band Brad has been a part of for three years.

This release show features Brad Kang (guitar), Jimmy Rainey (saxophones), Leonardo Coghini (piano), Tom Dennison (bass) and Hikurangi Schaverien-Kaa (drums).
