Join us for an intimate salon with jazz great Christian McBride
MOTI’s VALENTINE TO THE GREAT CHRISTIAN MCBRIDE
Powered by a relentless energy and a boundless love of swing, we’re excited to present this special, intimate performance with six-time Grammy winner Christian McBride and friends. His musicianship can be likened to a force of nature, fusing the fire and fury of a virtuoso with the depth and grounding of a seasoned journeyman.
As he said it,”Make no mistake, this music is for everyone. Jazz is not an exclusive, elite club. Go ahead, listen to your Snoop Doggy Dog, Pearl Jam, Garth Brooks, but add a little Ellington, Basie and Coltrane to your life as well.” As one of the most requested, recorded, and respected musicians and educators in the music world today, Christian’s immediate response to our invitation speaks to his heartfelt support of MOTI’s mission.
Music on the inside, Inc. (MOTI) works with dedicated professional musicians to bring music education and hope to those who are incarcerated, helping them gain confidence and support to reenter as productive members of society. Christian McBride, Ron Carter, Wynton Marsalis, Catherine Russell, Antoinette Montague, and Arturo O'Farrill are part of a growing movement of top artists supporting MOTI music education as a force for criminal justice reform. Mass Incarceration is one of the biggest civil rights issues of our times and music has a powerful role to play!
