Christian Mcbride

Christian McBride is a five-time GRAMMY® Award-winning bassist/composer who, since the early ‘90s, has recorded over 300 performances as a sideman and released albums as a leader since ’95.

Apart from various stints with Sting, Chick Corea, Pat Metheny, Roy Haynes, John McLaughlin, and George Duke, among others, McBride has been artist-in-residence and artistic director with organizations such as Jazz Aspen, Los Angeles Philharmonic, The Jazz Museum in Harlem, Jazz House Kids, and NJPAC (New Jersey Performing Arts Center - Newark).

McBride tours consistently with his trio and his quintet, Inside Straight. He also fronts the Christian McBride Big Band, whose Mack Avenue Records recording, " The Good Feeling," won the GRAMMY® Award for Best Large Jazz Ensemble Album in 2012—his third win overall.

In addition, McBride hosts a show on Sirius/XM and DJs at clubs as DJ Brother Mister. McBride was recently named host of “Jazz Night in America,” a new programme on US radio that showcases today’s thriving jazz scene.
