One of the most acclaimed artists of his generation, six-time Grammy Award-winning bassist and composer Christian McBride graces the Dazzle stage with his Inside Straight quintet.

Christian McBride is a six-time Grammy Award-winning bassist/composer and the host of NPR’s Jazz Night in America. Since the early 1990’s Christian McBride has recorded on over 300 dates as a sideman, but he’s also been a leader since his debut recording in 1995. Aside from various stints with Sting, Chick Corea, Pat Metheny, Roy Haynes, Freddie Hubbard and George Duke, McBride has been artist-in-residence and artistic director with organizations such as Jazz House Kids, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the National Jazz Museum in Harlem, Jazz Aspen, and NJPAC (New Jersey Performing Arts Center). McBride manages to tour consistently with his quartet, the New Jawn, and he also fronts the Grammy-winning Christian McBride Big Band, whose Mack Avenue recordings The Good Feeling and Bringin’ It won the Grammy Award for “Best Large Jazz Ensemble Album” in 2012 and 2017, respectively. In addition, McBride hosts “The Lowdown: Conversations With Christian” on Sirius XM and DJs at clubs as DJ Brother Mister. McBride was recently named the artistic director of the historic Newport Jazz Festival, taking over the reins from the festival’s longtime artistic director and founder, George Wein.
