Five-time Grammy-winning jazz bassist Christian McBride makes his return to the Xavier Music Series. Currently Artistic Director of the Newport Jazz Festival and host of NPR’s Jazz Night in America, he can be likened to 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. The trio will be with Emmett Cohen (piano) and Dan Wilson (guitar).
