JazzFest History

Christian McBride

Instrument: Bass
Born: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

"The acoustic bass is the mother, and the electric bass will always be the restless child. Sometimes the energy of a restless child is cool to have around. It gets everybody up, and it keeps you on your toes. But the mother is always there, watching over everything, a wholesome feeling."

- Christian McBride
