The Roots Crew have become one of the best known and most respected hip-hop acts in the business, winning four Grammys, including Best R&B Album for Wake Up!, Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance for “Hang in There” (with John Legend), and Best Group or Duo R&B Vocal Performance for “Shine.” This brings the band’s Grammy® nomination count to 12. Additionally, The Roots Picnic, a yearly star-studded mix of musicians, has become a celebrated institution. The Roots were named one of the greatest live bands around by Rolling Stone and serve as the official house band on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Most recently, The Roots announced that they are developing an animated children’s series, along with a live action children’s series, in partnership with Amazon.
The wildly versatile bassist Christian McBride opens with his Grammy-winning 21st-century big band for a set of tight, swinging jazz.
