Christian McBride is regarded as one of the great jazz bassists of this time. He played together with jazz legends such as Sonny Rollins and Herbie Hancock and with pop stars such as Sting and The Roots. His playing always sounds powerful, whether he’s playing a solo or rock-solid accompaniment. The bass player likes to take the lead, radiates pleasure on stage and wants to touch as many people as possible with his music. He can bring this all together in his big band; the band covers everything that the American jazz tradition stands for, from deep blues and rich swing to sensational solos. Christian McBride has won six Grammy Awards, among other for his big band album The Good Feeling and for his solo on the standard Cherokee.
