Christian McBride


This week on Eric Krasno Plus One, Eric talks with low-end legend Christian McBride. McBride has been a standout jazz bassist since the late 80’s, and has performed with a wild list of fellow superstars such as James Brown, Herbie Hancock, Pat Metheny, Ray Brown, and Chick Corea. McBride is often praised for his ability to make swinging jazz bass lines sound funky, which they discuss in-depth in the conversation.

In one of Kraz’s most intimate interviews to date, he and his longtime friend McBride discuss their jazz heroes, making the most out of constructive criticism, the importance of engaging the youth in jazz music, and much more. The bond between these two musicians shines throughout the whole interview, and tells you everything you need to know about one of music’s most undeniable powers- bringing people together.

McBride’s well-rounded, inclusive approach to music is refreshing and honest, and when you hear him speak about his dearest passion it only makes sense that he’s had the resoundingly successful career that he’s had. Tune in to catch Kraz’s latest discussion with another unique and rich musical soul.
