“McBride, as always, is strong-fingered and nimble… a paradigm of unforced, unselfconscious virtuosity.” – Jazz Times



Christian McBride is an eight-time Grammy-winning bassist, composer and bandleader. He is the Artistic Director of the historic Newport Jazz Festival and the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC). Moreover, he directs the TD James Moody Jazz Festival and the National Jazz Museum in Harlem. McBride also advocates for and educates youth. To that end, he serves as Artistic Director of Jazz House KiDS and the Jazz Aspen Snowmass Summer Sessions. Whether playing the bass or working off-stage, Christian McBride always engages with the music. He has made his mark, from jazz to R&B, pop/rock and hip-hop/neo-soul to classical, becoming a luminary, a living legend.

Four rising young master instrumentalists join him. Saxophonist Nicole Glover, guitarist Ely Perlman, pianist Mike King and drummer Savannah Harris play alongside him.
