Review: “The word “jawn”— a fresh new phenomenon—is familiar argot to Christian McBride, a Philadelphia native. And when it comes to trailblazing new, cool jazz, the venerable bassist always delivers. Enter his latest jawn—a pianoless quartet, born of a New York scene that sates East Coast soul-seekers and purists alike. Christian McBride’s New Jawn faithfully salutes its forebears, but leave it to this next-gen assimilation of bandleaders to take musical liberties. No doubt, the Philly flavor is present—tight instrumentation, fast-and-loose percussive subtlety and soul for days.” - Downbeat
