Paul McCandless & Charged Particles
Known for soaring lyricism and gorgeous compositions, multi-instrumentalist and composer Paul McCandless plays soprano, tenor, and sopranino saxophones, oboes, English horn, bass clarinet, penny whistles, and a collection of folk flutes. During a distinguished career spanning three decades, McCandless has been integral to the sound of two seminal world music bands, the Paul Winter Consort and the quartet, OREGON. As a leader, McCandless has released 30 records. As a collaborator and solo artist, he has performed on more than 200 albums and appeared with such renowned all-star musicians as Pat Metheny, Jaco Pastorius, Wynton Marsalis, Lyle Mays, Mark Isham, Steve Reich, Al Jarreau, Bruce Hornsby and many more.

Charged Particles features three of the country's virtuosos playing jazz while crossing stylistic boundaries and blending diverse traditions to create engaging new sounds. Murray Low is a keyboard wizard with dazzling Latin-jazz technique and imaginative improvisational skills. Aaron Germain is an inventive and sophisticated acoustic and electric bassist. Along with fiery drummer Jon Krosnick, these players are making some of the most electrifying jazz in the country today.
