SHARON MINEMOTO QUARTET CD RELEASE
Time 8:00 pm
Come party with The Sharon Minemoto Quartet as they launch their debut CD, "Safe Travels" on the Pagetown record label! Composer/pianist, Minemoto has assembled a wonderfully diverse menu of original music ranging from modern jazz composition to blues to rock/funk. The album includes a number of tunes written in celebration of her long-time partner, saxophonist/pianist, Ross Taggart, who was a favorite on the Vancouver jazz scene for over 20 years before he lost his battle with renal cancer in 2013. Minemoto keeps good company with a highly creative and playful band, which includes Jon Bentley on saxophones, Adam Thomas on bass and Bernie Arai on drums.
