Charged Particles is a trio that crosses stylistic boundaries and blends diverse traditions to create engaging new sounds. The group is Murray Low, a keyboard wizard with dazzling Latin-jazz technique and imaginative improvisational skills, along with Aaron Germain playing inventive and sophisticated acoustic and electric bassist and fiery drummer Jon Krosnick.
The trio’s repertoire blends jazz with elements of Latin music,funk, classical music, and other genres. The group’s original compositions are mixtures of complex orchestration and elaborate improvised solos. The band brings a similar approach to playing arrangements of tunes by other jazz artists and traditional jazz standards by the composers of America’s most popular songs from decades ago, each played with a new twist. The group’s small size allows for sensitivity and spontaneity among the players, making each performance an enchanting improvisational exploration.
Our Emerging Artist will be pianist Christina Galisatus. Christina began playing classical piano at age five and has competed at a number of piano competitions throughout California. She also plays French horn and toured throughout England, France, Spain, China, Germany, and the Czech Republic as principal horn of the Peninsula Youth Orchestra. It wasn’t until high school that Christina began to study jazz, largely influenced by her father, Michael Galisatus, a jazz trumpeter and educator. She is currently a student at Stanford University pursuing a double major in Music and Symbolic Systems, and performs with both the Stanford Jazz Orchestra and the Stanford Afro-Latin Jazz Ensemble.
