Christian McBride’s New Jawn: Pier One Import

KNKX Public Radio posted this video last month, with this description:

“When great musicians push themselves to do something different, it can be an exciting prospect. Christian McBride’s New Jawn quartet is a great example of that. And when those musicians really enjoy that challenge, that’s when the magic of jazz happens.”

Here’s the band in a live performance of “Pier One Import” at the KNKX studios.

And magic definitely happened here.
