West Coast Modern Week Concert: Sharon Minemoto & James Danderfer Trio

July 14, 2024, 1—2:15 pm

Cost: Free

Location: West Vancouver Memorial Library, Main Hall, 1950 Marine Drive, West Vancouver, BC

Join us for an intimate Sunday afternoon concert in the Library’s Main Hall, featuring Sharon Minemoto on piano, James Danderfer on clarinet, and Paul Rushka on bass. This trio will explore jazz classics of the ’50s and ’60s, with a few original compositions thrown in.

Pianist Sharon Minemoto is one of Vancouver’s most in-demand artists. Her latest album, Dark Night, Bright Stars (Cellar Music), features 12 of her own compositions. Sharon is an active educator, occasional radio host at CBC, and composer.

Composer, clarinetist, and saxophonist James Danderfer has made an impressive mark as a band leader, working with some of North America’s finest, including Steve Nelson, Quincy Davis, Don Thompson, and Oliver Gannon. James’ melodic approach to the rarely heard bass clarinet is uniquely personal and rooted in the jazz tradition.

Award-winning bassist Paul Rushka has engaged audiences throughout North America, Europe and Asia with his sonorous tone, assured, confident pulse, and eloquent soloing since 1997.

This concert is made possible thanks to a generous bequest in support of music at the Library from the estate of Robert Leslie Welsh, through the West Vancouver Memorial Library Foundation.
