Christian McBride joins host Raina Douris

Christian McBride has spent his career laying down grooves as a double jazz bassist, appearing on recordings in a wide variety of genres, backing everyone from The Roots to Chaka Khan to Paul McCartney to James Brown. He’s also led his own bands, including Christian McBride’s New Jawn – with whom he’s recently released a new album called Prime. Christian talks about falling in love with jazz and how he thinks about leading a band from the bass player’s position.
