Christian McBride’s New Jawn

November 1, 2023 @ 7:30 PM - 10:00 PM

$50 – $60

Join us in the lobby beginning at 7pm for wine specials and art exhibit by Chris Osborne!

Eight-time Grammy Award-winning composer, arranger, educator, curator and bassist extraordinaire – Christian McBride returns!  Aside from various stints with Sting, Chick Corea, Pat Metheny, Roy Haynes, Freddie Hubbard and George Duke, McBride has been artist-in-residence and artistic director with organizations such as Jazz House Kids, Los Angeles Philharmonic, The Jazz Museum in Harlem, Jazz Aspen among many others.

In his “New Jawn”, McBride leads an all-star quartet that draws on the powerhouse connection between McBride and drummer Nasheet Waits. The frontline of Josh Evans (trumpet) and Marcus Strickland (sax) soar as they are propelled by one of the world’s greatest rhythm sections with no piano or guitar chords to ground them. The word “Jawn” is used in Philadelphia slang (McBride’s home town) to describe a “person place or thing” (Urban Dictionary).
