Jazz Night In America - Christian McBride

In case you missed it, a few weeks ago, NPR's Jazz Night In America captured Christian McBride, the host of the show in performance right here in his own hometown of Philadelphia. The performance was his Civil Rights Era celebration, The Movement Revisited from the Merriam Theater of the Kimmel Center. The piece uses the words of Martin Luther King Jr, Malcolm X, Muhammad Ali and President Barack Obama as source material and inspiration. NPR's Audie Cornish guest-hosts this episode, featuring the Christian McBride Big Band, the Philadelphia Heritage Chorale, and orators Sonia Sanchez, Rev. Alyn Waller, Dion Graham and Samuel Stricklen.

Philly Jazz Quotes

Jazz is a phenomenon. …it's an element that was created that almost lacks definition. Because it's endless.
