Virtuoso upright and electric bassist – who has played alongside the likes of McCoy Tyner, Chick Corea and Freddie Hubbard – McBride brings a rare blend of irrepressible swing and deep funk to all that he plays. He's also a gifted composer with a penchant for nifty modern jazz numbers that effortlessly blend heady tunes with hearty grooves. Here he's championing talents like rising vibes star Warren Wolf, and sax ace Jaleel Shaw, both part of his forward-looking but all-acoustic jazz IS crew.
