Christian McBride and Derrick Hodge Groove on Philip Bailey’s New Solo Album

Philip Bailey: Love Will Find a WayEarth, Wind, & Fire co-founder Philip Bailey has released a new solo album, and though it doesn’t feature him fronting the legendary R&B band, it does have him surrounded by some of the world’s best musicians.

Love Will Find a Way is produced by Robert Glasper and features jazz giants Chick Corea, Steve Gadd, Kamasi Washington, Bilal, Kendrick Scott, and more. Bassist Christian McBride is featured on two tracks with Derrick Hodge anchoring the rest.

“Artists like Robert and Kamasi and Christian, they embrace the nuances of jazz and its historical value, but they’ve really infused the game with new possibilities. And I’ve been the recipient of infusion,” Bailey shared.
