It is fitting that the four-time Grammy® Award-winning Christian McBride would eventually record at the Village Vanguard, the most hallowed and historical nightclub in jazz: where the greats of the music - from John Coltrane to Bill Evans - have cast their spells. You can now hear McBride follow in these illustrious footsteps with his magnificent trio, which features drummer Ulysses Owens, Jr. and pianist Christian Sands.
"You can literally feel the ghosts of all of the legends that played there," McBride says. "You feel Coltrane hovering in the vortex. You feel Monk hovering in the vortex. Miles Davis, Mingus...you feel all of that in the air." They swing and swoon on nine tracks of originals, jazz standards and some surprise R&B/pop selections. This record is the fruit of McBride's long association with the Vanguard, where his first appearance as a leader for the historic club was in 1995.
