Sting singing “Consider Me Gone” with Christian McBride. This performance will appear on the upcoming release “Conversations With Christian” on Mack Avenue Records.
“I think the duet is a logical extension of the nature of the bass itself,” McBride says. “It’s the root. Joe Zawinul once stated that the drums are the father of all music, and the bass is the mother. I had a hard time disagreeing. The bass has the rhythm and the pulse, and also the notes and harmonies. That would seem to make it the ideal instrument for any sort of duet.”
