Christian McBride's New Jawn

December 3, 2023
Zellerbach Theatre
PLA Presents

Eight-time Grammy® Award-winning bassist Christian McBride returns to his hometown backed by his all-star quartet of Josh Evans (trumpet), Marcus Strickland (tenor sax) and Nasheet Waits (drums). Named in tribute to one of our city’s beloved colloquialisms, “the Philly flavor is present—tight instrumentation, fast-and-loose percussive subtlety and soul for days.” (DownBeat) McBride, known for his “astounding fluidity on the bass,” (The Philadelphia Inquirer) brings the fire and fury of a virtuoso and seasoned jazz luminary.
