-9:30pm and 11:30pm- Christopher McBride's Birthday Bash
Start Date/Time: Saturday, July 07, 2018 9:30 PM
Description:
    Celbrating his birthday weekend with us this weekend we are proud to present saxophonist Christopher McBride.

A superb Alto Saxophonist, Christopher McBride has been slowly but steadily turning heads with his ubiquitous work as an invaluable sideman since the mid-aughts. Now Christopher is gaining respect amongst fans, critics and his peers as one of the most versatile musicians in the world. His 2012 debut album Quatuor de Force certainly establishes his ability to front a group and write his own soulful, melodically indelible tunes. Applauded for his ability to play in all musical situations, McBride has the ability to unleash a fiery attack and serrated tone, but on his recent album he explores a more measured, mellow sound heavily influenced by contemporary R&B—with a strong shot of Cannonball Adderley’s post-bop sensuality–but his improvising is very rigorous and cogent.

Starting his professional career in Chicago in 2007, Christopher has been in high demand as a musician and clinician, performing and teaching primarily in New York, Illinois, Missouri and various states throughout the country. Christopher has shared his musical gift with audiences across the globe, performing in China, England, France, Haiti, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, Scotland, Spain and Switzerland.
