ABOUT THIS CONCERT
Beyond his incomparable reputation as the standard-bearing bassist in modern jazz, six-time GRAMMY winner and former SFJAZZ Resident Artistic Director Christian McBride has always been a restless explorer, constantly immersing himself in new musical environments with stimulating new collaborators. This performance, filmed in September 2016 at the start of the 2016-17 Season, was the West Coast debut of McBride’s exciting “New Jawn” project — a quartet named in reference to the uniquely Philadelphian slang for a person, place, or thing imbued with undeniable hipness and soul. Echoing the two horns/no piano lineup of the classic Ornette Coleman quartet, New Jawn is comprised of some of the most forward-thinking jazz artists on today’s scene including trumpeter Josh Evans, saxophonist Marcus Strickland, and longtime Jason Moran Bandwagon drummer Nasheet Waits. They performed music from their triple GRAMMY-nominated 2018 Mack Avenue release Christian McBride’s New Jawn. This concert premiered Friday, February 5, 2021 on Fridays At Five.
