Jazz Unlimited for Sunday, November 15 will be “The Career of Christian McBride.” Born in Philadelphia in 1972, bassist Christian McBride joined Bobby Watson’s Horizon at the age of 17. A virtuoso, he has played with nearly every important name in jazz since then. His career has involved funk, pop and fusion in addition to mainstream jazz, earning four Grammies. He will be heard with his mentor, Ray Brown, Jay McShann, Cyrus Chestnut, the Contemporary Piano Ensemble, Roy Hargrove, Joe Henderson, Ann Hampton Callaway, Gary Burton, Chick Corea, Kurt Elling, Donald Harrison, T.S. Monk, Cedar Walton, Sonny Rollins and his own groups and trio. I’m Dennis Owsley; please join me for “The Career of Christian McBride” on Jazz Unlimited Sunday from nine to midnight on St. Louis Public Radio, 90.7 KWMU.
The Slide Show contains my photographs of some of the artists heard on this show.
This Archive of the show will be available until the morning of November 23, 2015.
