It hard to categorize bassist Christian McBride—he’s as adept on acoustic bass as well as electric and transitions easily from mainstream jazz to downright funk, always with rhythm, swing and poise.

McBride discusses much, including first coming to New York from his hometown of Philadelphia, the legendary James Brown, and a list of fellow bass players who have been supportive of him throughout his career.
