Today @ UC Irvine

UC Irvine Today

Christian McBride Big Band

Six-time Grammy-winning jazz bassist Christian McBride can be likened to a force of nature. The Philadelphia native has become one of the most requested, most recorded, and most respected figures in the music world today. His latest release, Bringin’ It, won the 2018 Grammy Award for Best Large Jazz Ensemble and puts his status and skills as an all-around entertainer on full display. From jazz (Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock) to R&B (Chaka Khan, Natalie Cole, and the one and only Godfather of Soul himself, James Brown) to pop/rock (Sting, Paul McCartney) to classical (Kathleen Battle, Edgar Meyer), the iconic Christian McBride is powered by an impassioned energy and a boundless love of swing.
