Christian McBride is a creative force of nature.

The eight-time Grammy-winning bassist and composer is involved in almost every aspect of what we call jazz.

McBride is bringing his epic The Movement Revisited to Meridian Hall in Toronto, where he’ll be joined by his big band, the Toronto Mass Choir and four narrators to paint a musical portrait of the civil rights movement through five very powerful voices.

McBride joined us to talk about that project, and how history shapes our present and future.
