Christian McBride's New Jawn
Jawn [jän]: noun. A slang terminology from Philadelphia. All-purpose term for a person, place or thing.
If there’s one thing the acclaimed bassist knows, it’s that when it comes to grit there’s no better resource to draw from than his own hometown, Philadelphia. So, McBride turned to one of the city’s most beloved colloquialisms to christen his latest project, Christian McBride’s New Jawn. On the band’s eponymous debut, these four stellar musicians ably walk the razor’s edge between thrilling virtuosity and gut-punch instinctiveness. The release will be available via Brother Mister Productions, McBride’s own newly launched imprint of his longtime label, Mack Avenue Records.
This release is available as CD (6-panel digipak) and as vinyl (2-LP 180gm in deluxe gatefold package).
