A few years ago when I started listening to Nik Baertsch, I thought I’d never have the chance to see him perform live. And then the unexpected happened: my generous friend Ken Coffman sponsored not only a solo piano concert, but just a few months later he sponsored Nik and his entire zen funk band, RONIN, to perform in Apache Junction, AZ on March 21, 2019.

I would have filmed and recorded this show myself, but I was part of the opening act. Maybe there will be video of that some time in the future.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this performance of Modul 60 from RONIN’s album Awase. You can buy Awase on Nik’s online shop.
