Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Christian Mc Bride

Live At Tonic

2006-06-02

Modern bass master McBride has worked with everyone from jazz legends like McCoy Tyner and Joe Henderson to contemporaries like Joshua Redman and Diana Krall to rock and hip hop acts like Sting and The Roots. This astonishing three disc set recorded live in New York features some of the best improvisational jazz and fusion music to come to our library In a long time. With guests like Charlie Hunter, DJ Logic, and The Roots original beat-box virtuoso Scratch, the immensely talented band moves seamlessly from straight jazz sounds to funk and rock influences all with a back beat that never lets you go. Discs 2 and 3 are complete sets, fully improvised, with some very long run times, but don’t be scared. If you can find fifteen or twenty minuets to spare in your set, your listeners will be rewarded. This is truly great stuff from one of the best musiciansand bandleaders working today in any genre! Have fun!! -Calin
