Christian Mc Bride & Tip City says
Five-time Grammy-winning jazz bassist Christian McBride makes his debut at Cliff Bell’s, Detroit’s multi-award winning jazz club. Currently Artistic Director of the Newport Jazz Festival and host of NPR’s Jazz Night in America, he can be likened to a force of nature, fusing the fire and fury of a virtuoso with the depth and grounding of a seasoned journeyman. Powered by a relentless energy and a boundless love of swing, McBride’s path has described a continuous positive arc since his arrival on the scene. With a career now blazing into its third decade, the Philadelphia native has become one of the most respected figures in the music world today. The trio will be with Emmett Cohen (piano) and Dan Wilson (guitar).

Christian McBride has remained a prolific figure in jazz for 20 years as an acclaimed bassist, composer and educator. One of the most recorded musicians of his generation, he has played with and arranged for top artists such as Natalie Cole, James Brown, Sting and Carly Simon. Performing on his bass with a pianist and guitarist, he promises an evening of lively jazz standards alongside his original compositions.
