Charged Particles at Music Of The Spheres Concert Series at Lick Observatory
Charged Particles is making some of the most exciting and creative jazz today, playing high-energy, elaborately orchestrated original jazz, infused with elements of funk, Afro-Cuban music, and classical music. See www.chargedparticles.com. Of the band, reviewers have said: “An electrifying, push-the-limits performance style... A tight and enormously talented trio.” (Jazz Times Magazine), "Charged Particles is definitely dazzling." (Jazz and Blues Report), "Fresh, energized contemporary jazz that showcases the trio's individual technical mastery as well as a cooperative, refined approach to the art form." (Jazz News Magazine), and "Tight interplay was the watchword as the threesome took difficult fusion themes and applied its own twists with spark and personal flair." (Los Angeles Times). Recently, the band has been doing special projects with Grammy-winning reed player Paul McCandless and tenor saxophonist Tod Dickow.
