Christian McBride

Thanks to Mr. SLS and his best friend, I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. McBride last fall and I've heard him play live several times as well.

In my next life I want to be a bass player -- assuming I grow arms long enough to reach the top part of the bass. (smile)

Anyway, here's some good jazz listening for you on a lazy weekend:

  1. Christian McBride - he walks the walk, that's for sure. After Ray Brown, my all time favorite bass player, passed away, Christian has become the one that I go hear live as often as possible. The first time I heard him in concert I was so blown away that I sent him a gushing fan email. And he actually wrote back! What a guy!

    If you want to play bass you should do it. It's never too late. I didn't start until I was thirty. And if you're short, a 5/8 bass would probably be perfect.

  2. Thanks for the music as I'm back on my grind and I need some good jazz to mellow out the BS. Haven't been here in a while but I'm still around.
