“Built from the ground up — with McBride on bass, Nasheet Waits on drums, Marcus Strickland on tenor saxophone and bass clarinet, and Josh Evans on trumpet — the band combined post-bop harmonic daring with a good dollop of axle grease.”

— Nate Chinen, WBGO

Eight-time Grammy Award-winning jazz bassist Christian McBride is a force of nature, fusing the fire and fury of a virtuoso with the depth and grounding of a seasoned journeyman. Powered by a relentless energy and a boundless love of swing, McBride’s path has described a continuous positive arc since his arrival on the scene. With a career now blazing into its third decade, the Philadelphia native has become one of the most requested, most recorded, and most respected figures in the music world today. Drawing from the lexicon of his hometown, Philadelphia, McBride calls his pianoless quartet The New Jawn.

“No doubt, the Philly flavor is present—tight instrumentation, fast-and-loose percussive subtlety and soul for days.” — DownBeat
