Christian McBride a Major Presence on Warren Wolf’s Latest
Vibraphonist/composer Warren Wolf has released his third solo album, Convergence.
The record features the work of virtuoso bassist and five-time Grammy Award winner Christian McBride and other big names in modern jazz, including drummer Jeff “Tain” Watts, pianist Brad Mehldau and guitarist John Scofield.
McBride also produced the album and serves as a mentor to Wolf, who was a member of the bassist’s Inside Straight quintet. “It was a particular pleasure to bring Warren together with John Scofield and Brad Mehldau—two musicians he’d never worked with before,” McBride said. “Warren’s A-level musicianship clearly moves him into an echelon that musicians like Sco and Brad represent. I think the results were inspirational for all of the musicians involved.”
