Christian McBride

Happening in Judson’s Live – Dr. Phillips Center’s newest and most intimate venue. Inspired by the world’s legendary listening rooms, Judson’s Live includes a 90-minute experience with a 50-minute performance. Enjoy world-class cocktails and small plates while you’re here. The atmosphere is low-key, highly creative and always with a stylish slant.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Christian McBride is an eight-time Grammy Award-winning bassist, composer and bandleader, as well as the Artistic Director of the historic Newport Jazz Festival, New Jersey Performing Arts center (NJPAC) and the TD James Moody Jazz Festival, and the National Jazz Museum in Harlem. Christian is also a respected educator and advocate as the Artistic Director of Jazz House KiDS, and the Jazz Aspen Snowmass Summer Sessions. In addition to consistent touring, McBride hosts NPR's “Jazz Night in America” and "The Lowdown: Conversations with Christian" on SiriusXM. Whether behind the bass or away from it, McBride is always of the music. From jazz to R&B, pop/rock, hip-hop/neo-soul to classical, he is a luminary with one hand ever reaching for new heights, and the other extended in fellowship—and perhaps the hint of a challenge—inviting us to join him.
