O’s Notes: Jazz bassist Christian McBride demonstrates his prowess and the range of his instrument in a series of duets with equally talented partners. It is a novel approach that is well executed. Regina Carter (violin), Sting (v), Eddie Palmieri (p), Roy Hargrove (t), Dee Dee Bridgewater (v), George Duke (p), Chick Corea (p) and Russell Malone (g) all make strong statements. There is nowhere to hide in this format and no need to do so with this assemblage of talent. These Conversations with Christian McBride are spoken in many languages but they share a common sense of great jazz.
