Charged Particles with Tod Dickow
Play the Music of Michael Brecker
"Veteran Bay Area trio Charged Particles, with Tod Dickow mightily added on tenor saxophone, present eight Michael Brecker originals, and one from Don Grolnick."
"Smoking and intense from beginning to end, they’ve all internalized Mike and his music to an impressive degree of accuracy and moreover: feeling!"
"I found myself pinching my arm to remind myself that Mike is sadly no longer with us. You find yourself jumping into Mike’s mindset listening to this CD, and transported to another time. Take the journey and check out this live recording."
"Everyone is at the top of their Mike game!"
"Charged Particles dazzle."
- Downbeat Magazine
"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
"What dynamic music it is! A superb example of musical artistry at its best."
"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
"A fusion of disparate elements, grounded in a valid aesthetic, and played passionately with a high degree of professionalism."
- Midwest Jazz
"Tight, sophisticated, and playful. They showcased their camaraderie as much as their musicianship, gliding through their repertoire like the seasoned professionals they are and joyfully riffing on each other's improvisations. Not sure if the musicians or the audience had more fun, but a good time was definitely had by all."
- Ventura County Reporter
"I was amazed at the sophisticated musicianship of these very talented and dexterous musicians."
"The trio's execution of difficult compositions often is breathtaking, fans of this type of music should not be disappointed."
-The Columbus Dispatch
"Smart, intricately arranged tunes. Beatkeepers all, they add swing to every track."
-The Columbus Guardian
