Christian McBride’s New Jawn – Live at Ronnie Scott’s 2017

I had the pleasure of seeing Christian McBride at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz club last night, with his new band the New Jawn. If your wondering what the hell that means, it’s reference to a Philadelphia saying to “I dunno what you call it, … kinda a thing”. So yeah, it was a Quartet, but back in Philly its called a Jawn, so there you go. Christian McBride played alongside Nasheet Waitsm (drums), Josh Evans (trumpet), and Marcus Strickland (sax). The band were absolutely incredible, and I was lucky to have the best seat in the house. Christian McBride is renowned for bringing in new talent into the Jazz world, and his new Trumpet player, was shit hot. Whilst Nasheet is already a well accomplished drummer and Marcus is also a rising a star. There were a number of excellent compositions from all members of the Jawn, and Christian McBride absolutely smashed it. For an album recommendations check out “Live at the Village Vanguard” and my favorite “People Music”. Here is a video clip to see the man in action:
