Last year, the 30-year-old Bay-area based jazz trio, Charged Particles, released a CD (on Summit Records) with guest tenor saxophonist Tod Dickow playing the compositions of Michael Brecker. And recently, the group has been playing the music on tour with trumpter Randy Brecker. The quartet’s CD was named among the best 2021 jazz releases in JazzTimes magazine, Jazzwise Magazine, the San Jose Mercury News, 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 Dickow captures “the magic and brilliance of Brecker and saturates the group with power and purpose”, which “all three rhythm section members bring excitement and creativity to the bandstand.” Jazz Life magazine said that Dickow is “one of the best saxophonists in the world.” Don’t miss this San Jose debut of the quartet!
