Toe-tapping and finger-popping jazz

Christian McBride: Music Is About People, Not Grammys  
June 06, 201312

The U.S. considers jazz a national treasure.
But its core audience has been gradually shrinking — and aging.

I like to think of my music as toe-tapping and finger-popping jazz.

How do you know when a jazz artist is good?
I don’t know. That’s a personal realization. … it’s all about the personal palate.

MCBRIDE: Pleasure’s always mine.
