Yoshi's Local Talent Series: FREE live music in The Lounge 6:30 to 10:00pm!
Seating in The Lounge is first come, first serve.
The most exciting and creative jazz being made today crosses stylistic boundaries and blends multiple traditions to create fresh sounding music. Charged Particles features three of the country's virtuosos doing just that for in the electric jazz arena. Murray Low is a keyboard wizard whose dazzling Latin-jazz technique and imaginative improvisational skills are always delightful to listen to. Aaron Germain is an inventive and sophisticated acoustic and electric bassist who brings his instruments alive. Along with fiery drummer Jon Krosnick, these players are playing a blend of jazz that's funky, Afro-Cuban, Brasilian, intensely swinging, and features elements of classical music. The group's original compositions are elaborate orchestrations, and their renditions of jazz standards are each done with a new twist. Charged Particles has performed on Yoshi's main stage to a standing ovation, and their upcoming appearance in the Local Talent Series in the Lounge will be an unusual treat.
