The Busy Bass Of Christian McBride

In his third visit to the KNKX studios, Christian McBride’s recent trio album "Live at the Village Vanguard" had just earned him a Grammy for best improvised jazz solo, and let us in on the little-known fact that 99 percent of the big awards that night are awarded well before the national telecast, and that he never gets tired of the red carpet.

Apparently, very little tires Mr. McBride; leader of this trio, a big band, and a quintet. He also hosts NPR’s Jazz Night In America – heard Friday nights at 8:00 on KNKX – as has spent many years working with the non-profit Jazz House Kids; and he’s in constant demand to work with stars like Chick Corea, the Mack Avenue Superband, and even the J.B. Horns.

Joined live on KNKX for a second time by pianist Christian Sands, and this time with Jerome Jennings drumming, the great man of the bass led his trio through a pair of standards and a beautiful waltz by his pianist called “Sand Dune”.
