No. 3 -- Warren Wolf and Christian McBride at An die Musik Live
This terrific-sounding room regularly hosts top regional and national talent, and featured both when Baltimorean vibraphonist Warren Wolf brought in his boss, world-renowned bassist Christian McBride (pictured), for two beyond-sold-out sets in October. On burners like the standard "Cherokee," it was easy to see why these two men get along so well on the bandstand: Both are comprehensive talents, with powerhouse technique and comparably strong ideas about improvisation. The hooting and hollering audience, full of friends and family, spurred the band on through one fiery chorus after another.
