Christian McBride and Inside Straight

Christian McBride and Inside Straight are on tour across Canada for the next week or two. Saw them last night at the Grand Theatre during the Kingston Jazz Festival. From bright swing to bluesy soul, it’s superb jazz.

You won’t find a better evening of jazz than listening to this band. Christian attacks the bass, caresses the bass and carves bass riffs you won’t believe. Then there’s the rest of the band. Some musicians bond, like glue, when put together. A synergy develops. It’s different with Christian McBride and his current touring group, Inside Straight. They
bond with an energy that could be described as spiritual magnetism. They are
tight, yet fluid.

Congrats to the Kingston Jazz Society and The Grand Theatre.

Christian McBride (not with Inside Straight) will be at The Iridium on Broadway in New York City from July 29 – 31 and The Blue Note, on West 3rd in NYC, from August 16 – 21.
