Da Camera presents jazz bassist Christian McBride
Recent Grammy Award winning bassist Christian McBride returns to Da Camera’s series with his Inside Straight quintet. Bassist, composer, arranger, educator, curator and administrator, McBride has been one of the most important and omnipresent figures in the jazz world for 20 years. Beginning in 1989, this Philadelphia-born bassist moved to New York to further his classical studies at the Juilliard School, only to be snatched up by alto saxophonist Bobby Watson. Since then, McBride's list of accomplishments has been nothing short of staggering. As a sideman he's worked with Freddie Hubbard, Sonny Rollins, J.J. Johnson, Ray Brown, Milt Jackson, McCoy Tyner, Roy Haynes, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock and Pat Metheny.
