Christian McBride Big Band For Jimmy, Wes and Oliver 180g Vinyl 2LP
Christian McBride solidifies his role as the champion of the past, present and future of jazz with his Grammy Award-winning Big Band's new album in tribute to Jimmy Smith, Wes Montgomery and Oliver Nelson. Featuring special guests Joey DeFrancesco and Mark Whitfield, For Jimmy, Wes and Oliver honors the historical legacy of the jazz legends who shaped the soul of music for generations to come.
When the Philadelphia-born bassist/bandleader arrived in New York in 1989 as a Juilliard student, he was the "Godchild of the Groove" with unlimited potential. Today, with over 300 recordings as a sideman and 11 critically- acclaimed albums as a leader, he now reigns supreme as the "Lord of the Lower Frequencies." He's the influential and ubiquitous bassist of his generation, as evidenced by his quintet Inside Straight, his big band, his trio and his work with everybody from James Brown, Pat Metheny, Chick Corea and Wynton Marsalis to Sting, The Roots, Bruce Hornsby and Paul McCartney.
