SHARP THREE: World influenced contemporary jazz styles with…
Goh Kurosawa ~ guitar
Kai Kurosawa ~ bass
Chuck van Haecke ~ drums
Guest Artist: Kana Miyamoto ~ dancer (jazz contemporary)
Goh is recognized as a dynamic guitar instrumentalist throughout the west coast and Japan. He is often referred to as a musical approach to Western knowledge with the Japanese spirit, or in short a "musical wakonyosai." Occasionally he strives to be as cool as Nyan‐Nyan: his blue eyed white tiger-like cat.
Kai is one of the leading figures in tap‐style guitar playing as well as modern & traditional bass guitars. He is not only a dark knight on the one of a kind 24‐string "Beartrax ‐ Big Mama Bear" instrument which he designed, but also a kitchen ninja of spicy food and vegetarian delights.
Groovin’ with the Kurosawa Brothers on drums is Chuck who completes the S3 trio with his exceptionally creative tasteful approach to time, space, and silence. As an inescapable daily routine, he walks the unparalleled level of cuteness… his show stopper dog proudly known as Odys.
Kana has been described as being “elegantly tethered to an earthbound sorrow” by the Los Angeles Times, and her solo work has been called gripping and soul-searching. As a loving educator to many young students, she often finds herself cooking Japanese dishes for those who come visit her at home.
Tickets are $20.
