He is the baddest mother f**ker around. I'm glad someone finally brought
him to the bass picture. I saw him play with Carl Allen (a premiere
swing drummer) and he is the BOMB! Even if the tix are high, go see it
you won't be dissapointed. He also plays with Benny Green (a bad keys
player too.) McBride is one of the best young (like 23 or something)
bass players I have ever seen swing!!
