Goh Kurosawa with Sharp Three will appear live in Olympia, Monday, November 12, 2012, 8pm, at The Royal Lounge.
Through music, guitarist/composer Goh Kurosawa offers compositions/improvisations of soundscapes, images, memories, experiences, places, people, the future, and emotions. People have identified his style with musical genres such as creative music, acoustic, electric, bossa nova, jazz, folk, rock, flamenco, Latin, Balkan, classical, world music, experimental and beyond. Furthermore, Goh is sometimes referred to as a musical wakonyosai: a musical approach to the Western knowledge with the Japanese spirit.
Goh has made appearances by performing and teaching at festivals, universities, clubs, among other live venues in the US, Canada, France, South Korea, Mexico, Taiwan, Brazil, and Japan. Other credits include collaborations with guitar giant Miroslav Tadic (The Grand Mothers Reinvented, David Torn, and Dusan Bogdanovic), Masaki Yamada of the legendary Japanese rock band Loudness, Grammy Award-winning jazz artist Charlie Haden, Kelli Ali (Linkin’Park, Bootsy Collins, and Marilyn Manson) of One Little Indian Records, Alan Paul of the Manhattan Transfer, and master percussionist John Bergamo (Frank Zappa’s Abnuceals Emukka Orchestra, John McLaughlin’s Shakti, and Hands On’Semble).
Joining him are Kai Kurosawa and Chuck Van Haecke.
Kai is one of the leading figures in tapâ style guitar playing as well as modern & traditional bass guitars. He is a dark knight on the one of a kind 24 string “Beartrax-Big Mama Bear” instrument which he designed.
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.
