Live! from the Library: An Evening of Music with “Charged Particles”
December 5, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Live! from the Library presents a free concert featuring the dazzling and electrifying sound of the jazz trio “Charged Particles.” Just home from touring the world accompanying Grammy-winning jazz reed player Paul McCandless, the trio plays a fresh blend of original funky, swinging Latin jazz, with splashes of delicate romance. Don’t miss this performance at the library, which will also feature a selection of fun and festive Christmas music. REGISTER>
Band members Murray Low (keyboards), Aaron Germain (acoustic and electric bass), and Jon Krosnick (drums) have been playing together for 26 years. Downbeat Magazine called their performance at Birdland in New York City “something special” and described the music as “inventive, invigorating, mesmerizing, hard-hitting, beautiful, virtuosic, and lyrical.” Jazz Times magazine described the band as “a tight and enormously talented trio.”
