Christian McBride and Edgar Meyer Team Up For Bass Duo Tour

Christian McBride and Edgar MeyerDouble bass virtuosos Christian McBride and Edgar Meyer are teaming up for a duo tour this October. The tour begins in Edmonds, Washington at the Edmonds Center for the Arts before bouncing around the country over seven dates including several college appearances. The final performance is slated for October 30th at Emerson University’s Schwartz Center for the Arts in Atlanta, Georgia.

Each bassist comes at the instrument from a different angle, but the overlap of their talents and musical influences help to create a strong bond between the two. Meyer and McBride first collaborated in Aspen, Colorado last year with a recital that included jazz standards as well as folk and classical leaning songs. While they haven’t announced specifically what their tour will entail, this clip of “Green Slime” from Aspen may give us insight to the dynamic duo’s direction:

While these are the only dates thus far, McBride hinted on his Facebook page that the series of duo concerts will return next year, as well.

    I really would like to hear these two bassist play but I’m down south in U town. When I was 11 years old I was backstage at a wedding and came upon a upright bass and it shocked me the size of this bass , I plucked one string and thought what a amazing instrument.
    I worked hard mowing lawns till I had enough money to buy a Peavey Patriot bass and Minx amp in 1973. It gives me great pleasure to learn a new song.
