Best jazz shows in Denver in March

FRI & SAT | CHRISTIAN MCBRIDE TRIO at DAZZLE | 3/7-3/8 One of the best bassists in jazz today, 41-year-old Christian McBride has been playing professionally for more than half of his life. He got an early start as a teenager with Bobby Watsons's group and then went on to play with heavies like Freddie Hubbard, Benny Golson and Milt Jackson. Since his 1994 debut, Gettin' to It, McBride released a number of solid discs under his own name, including his latest Mack Avenue effort, Out Here, which features pianist Christian Sands and drummer Ulysses Owens Jr., both of which join the bassist during this two night stand.
