More Holiday Jazz Around The Island

December 10, 2009

The Sharon Minemoto Trio performs this Sunday, December 13 at the ArtSpring Theatre on Salt

Sharon Minemoto performs with her trio this Sunday on Salt Spring Island

Spring Island (2:30 pm/$24).

Based in Vancouver, Minemoto has received criticial praise for her lyrical touch on the piano, her unique arrangements of jazz standards and pop tunes, and her original compositions. A graduate of the Capilano University Jazz Program, she has also studied piano with Geoff Keezer and composition with Don Thompson.

In the late nineties she formed an acclaimed quintet featuring jazz greats Ross Taggart and Brad Turner. That group’s debut CD, released on Cellar Live, spent eight weeks atop the Canadian jazz and blues charts.

Her groups have been featured at the Vancouver International Jazz Festival, The Hornby Island Arts Festival, Festival Vancouver, the Jazz On The Wing series in Whitehorse, YT and at Club JZ in China, among others. As well, she has performed with the likes of Karin Plato and Dee Daniels, along with the Vancouver Symphony and the Phoenix Chamber choir.

Her trio will perform a mix of jazz standards and original compositions at the ArtSpring concert. Should be a good one. Highly recommended.

And don’t forget all the other great shows coming up, including The Jon Miller Quartet, Sean Drabitt’s A Charlie Brown Christmas, the Monik Nordine/Bob Murphy Quartet and the Hypatia Creative Women’s Jazz Orchestra.  Details can be found below in “Holiday Jazz Around the Island.”
