An electrifying new creative direction from one of the leading artists in jazz.

“This may be the best band [Christian McBride] has ever had.” —JazzTimes
“New Jawn is one of the most energized new combos on the current scene.” —DownBeat

Bassist Christian McBride is one of the most accomplished jazz artists of his generation, and the popular host of Jazz Night in America, on NPR. His collaborations with jazz legends include projects with Sonny Rollins, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, and Pat Metheny, and his Grammy-winning bandleader credits are no less impressive. In this concert, the Stanford Jazz Festival debut of Christian’s newest ensemble, Christian delves into the piano-less tradition of great bands such as those of Gerry Mulligan and Ornette Coleman. New Jawn features two highly creative horn players and one of the most in-demand drummers of this generation.
