Christian McBride Band
229 The Venue, London.
Five-time GRAMMY®-winning jazz bassist Christian McBride can be likened to a force of nature, fusing the fire and fury of a virtuoso with the depth and grounding of a seasoned journeyman. With a career now blazing into its third decade, the Philadelphia native has become one of the most requested, most recorded, and most respected figures in the music world today.
His latest grouping, CHRISTIAN McBRIDE’S NEW JAWN, is a killer unit, tight, soulful, in the pocket and in the groove. By the way, Jawn is Philly slang to describe just about everything and anything, but most importantly to understand why McBride named his new band so, it is probably this: “Jawn’ is one Philly thing New York can’t lay claim to.”
Christian McBride has worked alongside Freddie Hubbard, Sonny Rollins, J.J. Johnson, Ray Brown, Milt Jackson, McCoy Tyner, Roy Haynes, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Pat Metheny, Isaac Hayes, Chaka Khan, Natalie Cole, Lalah Hathaway, James Brown, Sting, Paul McCartney, Carly Simon, Don Henley, Bruce Hornsby, The Roots, D'Angelo, Queen Latifah, Kathleen Battle, Edgar Meyer, Shanghai Quartet, Sonus Quartet and many more.
