Be­yond jazz: Mitochondriacs

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS - — Paul Wei­de­man

Mitochondriacs, a Santa Fe band, take the stage at Gig Per­for­mance Space (1808 Sec­ond St.) on Fri­day, March 25. The mem­bers — Doug Wooldridge, gui­tar; Jeff Suss­mann, per­cus­sion; Jack Kotz, bass; and Casey An­der­sen, pi­ano — play orig­i­nal com­po­si­tions and cre­ate mu­sic spon­ta­neously. “We have found that af­ter play­ing to­gether for a few years, our im­pro­vised work has reached new lev­els of har­monic and rhyth­mic depth while re­tain­ing a sense of im­me­di­acy and fresh­ness,” Kotz said. “Our com­po­si­tions def­i­nitely have their roots in jazz, yet push the rhyth­mic and har­monic bound­aries that one might as­so­ci­ate with that tra­di­tion. In do­ing this, we al­ways strive to keep it mu­si­cal, fun, and very lis­ten­able.” The mu­sic starts at 7:30 p.m. Ad­mis­sion is $20. See www.gigsantafe.com for in­for­ma­tion.
