Christian McBride on JazzSet
December 16, 2011. Posted by Becca Pulliam.
Christian has great musicianship, personality, and he's versatile. In 2008 he led a Philly-Detroit Connection show at the Detroit Jazz Fest. In 2009 he served as DJF Artist in Residence. He returned to Detroit in winter 2010 to present The Movement Revisited, a suite for four civil rights era figures, which I blogged about here. His two current CDs feature his big band and a program of duets with various artists.
And on this JazzSet from Detroit, Christian is the heart and soul of his small group. Tune in / log on for Christian McBride and Inside Straight at the 2009 DJF, this Sunday, December 18 at 6pm, and again Wednesday, December 21 (solstice night?) at 6:30. They play outdoors in Hart Plaza, named for MI Sen. Philip Hart (1912-76), "The Conscience of the Senate".
Rhonda Hamilton is the guest host. Here's a promo, and there's more about the show here.
