One of the most acclaimed artists of his generation, six-time Grammy Award-winning bassist and composer Christian McBride graces the Dazzle stage with his Inside Straight quintet.

Christian McBride is a six-time Grammy Award-winning bassist/composer and the host of NPR’s Jazz Night in America. Since the early 1990’s Christian McBride has recorded on over 300 dates as a sideman, but he’s also been a leader since his debut recording in 1995. Aside from various stints with Sting, Chick Corea, Pat Metheny, Roy Haynes, Freddie Hubbard and George Duke, McBride has been artist-in-residence and artistic director with organizations such as Jazz House Kids, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the National Jazz Museum in Harlem, Jazz Aspen, and NJPAC (New Jersey Performing Arts Center). McBride manages to tour consistently with his quartet, the New Jawn, and he also fronts the Grammy-winning Christian McBride Big Band, whose Mack Avenue recordings The Good Feeling and Bringin’ It won the Grammy Award for “Best Large Jazz Ensemble Album” in 2012 and 2017, respectively. In addition, McBride hosts “The Lowdown: Conversations With Christian” on Sirius XM and DJs at clubs as DJ Brother Mister. McBride was recently named the artistic director of the historic Newport Jazz Festival, taking over the reins from the festival’s longtime artistic director and founder, George Wein.

Dazzle is Closed Until Further NoticeCoronavirus

Dazzle family and friends, we want to update everyone on our current approach to operations this spring and summer as the COVID-19 crisis levels out.  The Denver restaurant/venue closure is currently set to last through May 11th, after which we intend to re-open under semi-normal operations.  This, of course, is subject to change and may be affected by changing CDC social gathering guidelines.  Obviously, the health of our community is imperative, and we will enforce social distancing practices and improved sanitary practices by our employees.  Our staff and the musicians that we employ rely on our operation in order to make a living and this is the driving force behind our immediate re-opening.  We are currently reaching out to musicians to re-schedule shows that were affected by this crisis.  Please keep an eye on our calendar over the next few weeks in order to stay up-to-date on rescheduled and upcoming performances.  Hope to see you soon!
