Rated One of the Best Jazz Albums of 2022 by The Absolute Sound!
While attending a show at the Village Vanguard in 2006, it occurred to Christian McBride that he hadn't played there in nearly 9 years, as he'd been touring the world over. In June of 2007, Christian returned to the Village Vanguard with a group consisting of Steve Wilson, Eric Reed, Carl Allen and a young vibraphonist whom he'd recently met, Warren Wolf. Due to prior commitments, Eric Reed could no longer be in the group, but pianist Peter Martin joined the group immediately upon the release of Christian McBride & Inside Straight's first Mack Avenue recording, Kind Of Brown, and Peter's been in the piano chair ever since.
The Village Vanguard has been Christian McBride & Inside Straight's home for one to two weeks every December. Although many iterations of his groups have played there, Inside Straight was birthed at the Village Vanguard. This particular set was recorded in December of 2014, titled Live At The Village Vanguard.
All original compositions, all hits, no misses, great sound, high-powered, and inspired virtuoso performances. A visit to The Village Vanguard you are sure to enjoy.
The personification of high-intensity, straight-ahead postbop, no group in jazz swings harder, thanks to the elite rhythm section of McBride, Peter Martin on piano and Carl Allen on drums. This set, recorded in 2014 during the same two-week engagement as the Grammy-winning Christian McBride Trio Live at the Village Vanguard, showcases originals by three members and features astounding solos by McBride, Warren Wolf on vibes, and Steve Wilson on alto and soprano. Swing lives.
