Charged Particles

June 13 @ 7:30 pm

- $12.00 – $25.00

Charged Particles has been playing funky Latin jazz in Indonesia, the U.K., Canada, Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, and Italy, and across the U.S., at famed jazz clubs including Yoshi’s, Ronnie Scott’s, Birdland, Blues Alley, the Dakota, the Deer Head Inn, the Falcon, Nighttown, as well as the Musical Instrument Museum, the Columbus Jazz Festival, the Stanford Jazz Festival, the San Luis Obispo Jazz Festival, the Eureka Springs Jazz Festival, and in hundreds of other venues over their 30 years of music-making.

The band recently sold out Ronnie Scott’s (in London) and Birdland (in New York City) with tenor saxophonist Tod Dickow and world class trumpeter, Randy Brecker, playing new arrangements of compositions by the late great jazz saxophonist Michael Brecker on the CD, “Live at the Baked Potato!” (Summit Records). The CD was named among the best 2021 jazz releases in JazzTimes Magazine, Jazzwise Magazine, the San Jose Mercury News, the Jazz Journalists Association, the 16th Annual Jazz Critics Poll, Glide Magazine, Nippertown Magazine, and more publications.  Randy Brecker said the recording is “smoking and intense from beginning to end”.  Bill Milkowski, author of Michael Brecker’s biography, said the record is “staggering in its authenticity.”  Downbeat Magazine said that the record features “exciting, satisfying stuff”.  LA Jazz Scene said that “all three rhythm section members bring excitement and creativity to the bandstand.” In a concert review, Downbeat Magazine called the band “something special” and “inventive, invigorating, mesmerizing, beautiful, virtuosic, and lyrical.”  Nippertown Magazine said the band’s performance at the Albany Riverfront Jazz Festival in New York was “often thrilling” and “the peak set of the day”.  The Oxford Times said their performance at the Spin Jazz Club (in the U.K.) was “brilliant”.
