This celebratory anniversary tour led by Grammy Award-winning bassist and musical director Christian McBride, along with Tony and Grammy Award-winning vocalist Dee Dee Bridgewater, features some of the most talented jazz musicians working today. Bridgewater’s soothing, strong and emotional voice; McBride’s imaginative touch on bass; drummer Lewis Nash’s inventive syncopation; and the creative intelligence of pianist Benny Green, saxophonist Chris Potter and trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire add the kinetic spark that channels the energy and panache of the storied Monterey Jazz Festival into the Valley Performing Arts Center.
