“Sometimes boisterous and sometimes contemplative, sometimes playful and sometimes
thunderously powerful, Christian McBride’s ‘The Movement Revisited’ is one of those rare works
of art that impresses not just with its depth, but with its breadth.” (NJArts)
A night of American heroes. Six-time Grammy Award®-winning bassist, bandleader, and host of
NPR’s Jazz Night in America Christian McBride presents The Movement Revisited, a commemorative
suite honoring five of the most significant figures in 20th-century African American history:
Rosa Parks, Malcolm X, Muhammad Ali, Martin Luther King Jr., and President Barack Obama.
Blending jazz and big bands with gospel choirs and powerful narration, McBride’s moving
musical tribute equals the achievements of those it exalts.
