Christian McBride Trio: Fried Pies

Here’s a clip that will get your foot tapping. Christian McBride and his trio of pianist Christian Sands and drummer Ulysses Owens, Jr. recently visited Seattle’s KPLU for a small set including their take on the classic Wes Montgomery tune “Fried Pies.”

The group is firing on all cylinders as they quickly get into a heavy groove. After laying down a killer walking bass under the piano solo, McBride takes a solo of his own that includes bluesy riffs and blistering licks.
