That’s what jazz critics have been saying about the new record by Bay Area tenor saxophonist Tod Dickow with the trio, Charged Particles (that was born in Columbus 30 years ago before relocating to California). “Live at the Baked Potato!”, released on Summit Records, features the compositions of jazz superstar, Michael Brecker. Mike’s brother, Randy, famed jazz trumpeter and Mike’s musical partner, said of the record: “Smoking and intense from beginning to end, Veteran Bay Area trio, Charged Particles, with Tod Dickow mightily added on tenor saxophone, have all internalized Mike and his music to an impressive degree of accuracy and moreover: feeling! Everyone is at the top of their Mike game!” Jazziz Magazine said: “The record features Dickow’s prodigious, Brecker-like technique as he alternatively burns, darts, and finesses through challenging arrangements.” The band plays about 150 performances a year, and recent months have seen touring to England, North Carolina, Virginia, New Hampshire, Texas, Utah, Oklahoma, and Los Angeles, in addition to lots of northern California gigs near their home. The band will visit Lucille’s for a special one-time performance while in Ohio to headline at the Columbus Jazz and Rib Festival. This gig will be special for drummer Jon Krosnick, who played many gigs at Rusty’s Jazz Café in Toledo during his decade living in Ann Arbor.
