Michael Dease Releases “Coming Home”, Featuring Christian McBride
Trombonist Michael Dease has released his fifth album as a leader, entitled Coming Home. The 11-track release showcases the jazz side of his upbringing in Augusta, Georgia with a healthy mix of standards and original tunes.
Dease recruited bass legend Christian McBride to anchor the album, citing his tastefulness and virtuosic playing.
“Everything he plays feels so good,” Dease said. “It feels like it’s right where it’s supposed to be and it’s just what the music needs.”
McBride opens the album with a soulful, straight-eighth note groove on Dease’s original composition “Solid Gold,” and offers incredible solos on nearly every track. The group also opens up on McBride’s song “The Shade of the Cedar Tree.”
