Become a fan of Goh Kurosawa Track
”Classical and flamenco, with snippets of folk and rock, all wound together with a thoroughly Asian flavor...” Kirk Albrecht (

“Goh exhibits a masterful use of dynamics ranging from quiet melodic passages to biting, clashing controlled explosions... prepare to have your highest expectations shattered!” Dave Edwards (Live Music Alliance)

“Guitarist Goh gave a cavalcade of string versatility, from nylon-string flamenco to Mahavishnuesque electric rave-ups. These two would make a formidable concert package!” Kirk Silsbee (Downbeat Magazine)

“An incredible player with a broad command of multiple genres!” Michael Connolly (Empty Sea Studios)

“A performance that one would not want to miss - this guy is fantastic...” Jack Miller (Antelope Valley Guitar Society)

“Whatever the guitar wanted to be, you found!” Cheri (Fan Message)

“A complete success!” Brett Callwood (Acoustic Magazine)

“Sharp Three is a treasure of diverse musical influences and unique orchestral arrangements that provide a deeply colorful sound experience... one of the best musical trios I've heard in quite some time!” John Coia (

“Sharp Three is at times pretty complex and cerebral but also surprisingly has raw and live qualities that we don't usually expect from this musical genre.” Marc (ProGGnosis)

“Sharp Three can be listened to repeatedly and you'll still likely hear something new or identify an unknown voice you couldn't place before.” Lorelei Clarke (Jazz Review)

“Cool CD!” Barry Cleveland (Guitar Player Magazine)

“Sharp Three blends musical styles from around the globe to create a unique sound!” Julia Gaines (Percussive Notes)
