Celebrating their 29th anniversary this year, Charged Particles is a trio (keyboards, bass, drums), based in the San Francisco area. They play funky Latin jazz, as well as creative arrangements of jazz standards. They've played in hundreds of concert, festival, and club settings across the U.S. and abroad and released three CD's that have received airplay on more than 100 radio stations, as well as NPR's All Things Considered. 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 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 themes and applied its own twists with spark and personal flair." (Los Angeles Times) Downbeat Magazine recently called their performance at Birdland in New York City "something special" and described the music as "inventive, invigorating, mesmerizing, and virtuostic."
