A conversation with Christian McBride

hosted by WRTI's Josh Jackson

June 6, 2023

Ars Nova Workshop, in collaboration with Mack Avenue Music Group, Brother Mister Productions, and WRTI, celebrates the release of Prime*, the new LP from Christian McBride’s New Jawn. Join us for an in-depth panel discussion hosted by WRTI’s Josh Jackson and meet-and-greet hang with the most exciting voices in jazz and beyond.

Christian McBride’s New Jawn features trumpeter Josh Evans (Jackie McLean, Cedar Walton, Rasheid Ali), saxophonist and bass clarinetist Marcus Strickland (Roy Haynes, Jeff “Tain” Watts, Chris Dave, Bilal, Robert Glasper), and drummer Nasheet Waits (Jason Moran, Joe Lovano, John Medeski) The new recording features original compositions from each band member as well as fresh takes on compositions by Sonny Rollins, Ornette Coleman and Larry Young. New Jawn offers an exhilarating space of exploration for the 8-time GRAMMY® Award-winning McBride to stretch his veteran wings.
*Purchase Prime on CD or vinyl at the event and have the members of New Jawn sign your copy.
