CD review: Christian McBride, Benny Green, Gregory Hutchinson – Live from Jazz St. Louis 2022: Video, CD cover

They don’t get together much anymore, but when they do, you’d better reinforce the walls because the joint will be swinging’!

Bassist Christian McBride, pianist Benny Green, and drummer Gregory Hutchinson are among the most respected and well-loved purveyors of the modern American music we call jazz. This special engagement brings the three long-time musical compadres together to pay tribute to their mentor, legendary bassist Ray Brown.

The joy will be infectious when this trio hits the stage and we invite you to sit at the table of swing!
