Savannah Music Festival: Christian McBride Trio

Airs Thursday, January 15 at 8 p.m.  When your personal goal as a musician is to pull the audience in so that they feel like they're a part of the ride, then you're making what Christian McBride calls "people music." That's the mantra that McBride has lived by throughout his career, which combined with his abundant virtuosity, has made him the most in-demand bassist of his generation. In this episode, we listen to a lunchtime performance given by Christian McBride's Trio at the 2014 Savannah Music Festival, including Ulysses Owens, Jr. on drums and Christian Sands on piano.
