Steve Carpenter, Public Information Director for Kirkwood (and former KCCK Manager) alerted us to a complimentary post jazz bassist Christian McBride made on his blog about his April performance in Cedar Rapids with the Kirkwood Jazz Ensemble and CR Jazz. He had particularly nice things to say about director Tim Feldkamp. Read it here.
We will have at least one, and possibly two chances to see Christian this fall. He's a part of the Pat Metheny Trio, playing at Hancher on Oct. 10. Details here.
And we may see him nine days earlier, also at Hancher, as he has been touring with Queen Latifah's band. Details.
If he wants to save on air travel, he can crash at my place...
