According to a press release, "Bassist, composer, arranger, educator, curator and administrator Christian McBride has been one of the most important and omnipresent figures in the jazz world for 20 years. Beginning in 1989, this Philadelphia-born bassist moved to New York to further his classical studies at the Juilliard School, only to be snatched up by alto saxophonist Bobby Watson. Since then, McBride’s list of accomplishments has been nothing short of staggering. As a sideman he’s worked with Freddie Hubbard, Sonny Rollins, J.J. Johnson, Ray Brown, Milt Jackson, McCoy Tyner, Roy Haynes, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock and Pat Metheny. In the rhythm and blues world, he’s played with and arranged for Isaac Hayes, Chaka Khan, Natalie Cole, Lalah Hathaway and James Brown. In the pop/rock world, he’s extensively collaborated with Sting, Carly Simon, Don Henley and Bruce Hornsby. In the hip-hop/neo-soul world, he's collaborated with the Roots, D'Angelo and Queen Latifah. In many other specialty projects, he’s worked closely with opera legend Kathleen Battle, bass virtuoso Edgar Meyer, the Shanghai Quartet and the Sonus Quartet."
The Wortham Theater Center is at 500 Texas Ave., Houston.
