Paul Mc Candless With Charged Particles says
During a distinguished career spanning over four decades, Paul McCandless has brought the soaring lyricism in his playing and composing to the ensemble sound of two seminal iconic bands of jazz: the original Paul Winter Consort and the relentlessly innovative quartet Oregon.

McCandless specializes in the oboe, English horn, bass clarinet, soprano and sopranino saxophones, and a collection of folk flutes reflecting his grounding in both classical and jazz disciplines. Trained at the Manhattan School of Music, he was a finalist in the 1971 English horn auditions for the New York Philharmonic. Today, he says he is lucky not to have won those auditions, because a victory would have pulled him into the world of full-time classical performing, and he would have missed out on the rich life he has had in jazz.

As a collaborator and solo artist, McCandless has performed on more than two hundred albums and appeared with such renowned musicians as Pat Metheny, Jaco Pastorius, Wynton Marsalis, Lyle Mays, Mark Isham, Steve Reich, Al Jarreau, Bruce Hornsby, Art Lande, Carla Bley, Tony Furtado, the String Cheese Incident, Nguyên Lê, Proteus 7, Fred Simon, and many more. In 1996, McCandless won a GRAMMY for Best Pop Instrumental with Béla Fleck and the Flecktones. With t
