Christian McBride Big Band Releases “Bringin’ It”

Christian McBride: Bringin’ ItHe started his career as a band leader by Gettin’ To It, but now Christian McBride is Bringin’ It on his new big band album. It’s the famed jazz bassist’s second album with his big band, which has a few new members this go around. The adjustment was a quick one.

“These guys know my sound. They know my style. They know what my compositional and arranging DNA is,” McBride explains. “I’ve been able to keep the exact same unit, so like Duke Ellington used to do, I can write for my guys because I know their sound and style.”

The album features a blend of McBride’s originals, jazz standards, and even a version of “Mr. Bojangles” featuring his wife Melissa Walker on vocals. Get the scoop on Bringin’ It from McBride himself:

Bringin’ It is available now on CD, vinyl and as a digital download (iTunes and Amazon MP3).
