Friday December 27th Bologna Jazz Festival, in collaboration with Umbria Jazz Winter and thanks to the contribution of Comune di Bologna, presents for an extra date Christian Mcbride & Inside Straight in concert at Teatro Duse in Bologna.
One of the most convincing performers of the long jazz double bass’ tradition, Mcbride has been conducting an intense activity since the 90’s, which includes collaborations with important names such as McCoy Tyner, Johnny Griffin, Betty Carter, Michael Brecker, Pat Metheny e Chick Corea. Mcbride is a virtuoso solo artist and a supporting musician with a remarkable harmonic smartness, who has been leading his own bands for years: he will perform at Teatro Duse with the Inside Straight quintet, which includes young Warren Wolf on the vibraphone and three seasoned musicians such as saxophonist Steve Wilson, pianist Peter Martin and drummer Carl Allen.
The concert takes place as an event related to the initiatives promoted by Comune di Bologna with the name BO ON – Bologna si accende, a series of events that liven up the city from the Christmas period to January 6th.
