Remembering Ray Brown: Christian McBride, Benny Green and Jeff Hamilton with Special Guest Dee Dee Bridgewater

Christian McBride is a six-time Grammy Award-winning bassist/composer, the host of NPR’s Jazz Night in America, and artistic director of the Newport Jazz Festival. Since the early 1990’s Christian McBride has recorded on over 300 dates as a sideman. However, he’s been a leader from his debut recording in 1995. Aside from various stints with Sting, Chick Corea, Pat Metheny, Roy Haynes, Freddie Hubbard, and George Duke, McBride has been artist-in-residence and artistic director with organizations such as Jazz House Kids, Los Angeles Philharmonic, The Jazz Museum in Harlem, Jazz Aspen, and NJPAC (New Jersey Performing Arts Center — Newark). With this lineup of the Remembering Ray Brown Trio, McBride is joined by pianist Benny Green and drummer Jeff Hamilton, both of whom worked extensively under the mentorship of the great bandleader and Dizzy Gillespie collaborator Ray Brown. One of Christian McBride’s foremost musical influences, Brown also collaborated with acclaimed vocalist Dee Dee Bridgewater, who will join the trio as a special guest.
