George Duke with Christian McBride: It’s On, Live 2010

While Christian McBride is typically known for his stellar straight-ahead work, the man can get down on some funk. Here’s a crazy good clip of him in concert with the late great George Duke and drummer Ronald Bruner, Jr. at the Java Jazz festival in 2010. The trio gets into a collective consciousness to get heavy into the groove.

Check out McBride’s solo at the 4:04 mark for some funky fretless action.
