About the album

There is no doubt that Christian McBride is one of the most versatile musicians on the scene today. His artistry has been documented in recordings and performances with the widest possible range of musicians in the most varied settings and genres one might imagine. While attending a show at the Village Vanguard in 2006, it occurred to 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 McBride’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. McBride’s Trio also recorded at the Vanguard and the GRAMMY® nominated CD/LP was released in September 2015.
