iTunes Review

Bassist Christian McBride has already appeared on more than 300 albums as a sideman, with another 11 where he leads the band. Here with two next-generation Young Lions—pianist Christian Sands and drummer Ulysses Owens Jr.—McBride pares his Inside Straight quintet down to an acoustic trio to make this lineup’s debut. With such a virtuoso in the lead, one would assume the youngsters would have trouble keeping up. But even though McBride does take a lot of solo time, the other two have plenty of space to shine on this mix of originals, covers, and standards. McBride puts his low-end stamp on the free-flowing “My Favorite Things” with substantial help for the versatile Sands. Owens, on the other hand, is from the Brian Blade school of narrative drumming (where soloing isn’t a isolated act but rather something worked in whenever there's room, such as on “East of the Sun”). Out Here is balanced by the gospel-ish “Hallelujah Time” and the early R&B standard “Who's Makin’ Love,” not to mention the Oscar Hammerstein ballad “I Have Dreamed,” which has an almost classical feel.

Coolest version of My Favorite Things ever

Nearly everyone's favorite acoustic bassist to emerge in the 1990s, Christian McBride's large sound and expertise, both with plucked and bowed solos, recall Ray Brown and particularly Paul Chambers. He actually started on electric bass when he was eight and took R&B gigs in high school, but by then he was getting more interested in jazz and playing the acoustic bass. McBride studied at Juilliard (starting in 1989) and then played briefly in the bands of Bobby Watson, Benny Golson, Roy Hargrove,...
