Christian McBride, Peter Martin to perform Saturday, September 11 at the Sheldon

Peter Martin has announced the next concert in his eponymous series at the Sheldon Concert Hall: a duo show with bassist Christian McBride (pictured) on Saturday, September 11.

McBride played Jazz at the Bistro last November with his group Inside Straight (including Martin on piano), and is scheduled to return to the Bistro in March 2011 with pianist Benny Green and drummer Gregory Hutchinson for a tribute to bassist Ray Brown.

The McBride/Martin concert will be the fourth in the pianist's series at the Sheldon, which began in February with the duo of Martin and singer Dianne Reeves, followed by a concert featuring the pianist and trumpeter/singer Jeremy Davenport, and this past Friday's trio performance with Martin, bassist Chris Thomas and drummer Ulysses Owens, Jr.

Tickets are on sale now at $50 for the VIP package with preferred seating and free parking, $30 orchestra, $25 balcony via Metrotix or the Sheldon's website.
