Michael Brecker fans should head down to the East Side Jazz Club in Leytonstone next Tuesday 21 March to see the Northern California-based jazz trio Charged Particles, (Murray Low, Keyboards, Aaron Germain, Basses, and Jon Krosnick, Drums). They trio has been performing together for three decades, and will be joined by American tenor saxophonist Tod Dickow, playing the music of the late great jazz superstar Michael Brecker.
The band and Tod have done several tours in the US and the UK performing Michael Brecker’s music even adding Michael’s brother Randy Becker on some gigs. Randy , on first hearing the band , said he had to pinch himself to remember his brother was no longer with us.
Their tribute to Brecker has been captured on the CD “Live at the Baked Potato” to rave reviews “Favorite Jazz Releases of 2021” (JazzTimes); “Ten 2021 Albums Worth a Listen” (San Jose Mercury News); “2021’s Best Jazz Albums” (Glide Magazine); “Staggering in its authenticity.” (Bill Milkowski, author of Michael Brecker’s biography)
