Every little thing he does is magic!

Former Police frontman Sting will join jazz bassist Christian McBride to perform in an annual fundraiser event benefiting Montclair’s Jazz House Kids on Wednesday, February 28, in New York City. McBride, an 8-time Grammy winner and the nonprofit’s artistic director, will also host the show.

The pair shares a musical history, having worked together on projects over two decades. McBride is credited as a sideman on Sting’s albums All This Time and Sacred Love; Sting is featured on McBride’s album Conversations with Christian.

The reunion of these two renowned musicians is a one-night-only event, held at Manhattan’s Ralph Pucci International gallery on 44 West 18th Street. Jazz House students are slated to perform as well.

For the past eight years, Jazz House and Ralph Pucci have partnered for the annual jazz-set fundraiser, held inside Ralph Pucci International’s luxury furniture design gallery. It’s transformed into an intimate jazz club for an eclectic night of music, mingling and fundraising to help keep the arts alive for the talented kids at Jazz House. 

Jazz House Kids is a nationally acclaimed Montclair nonprofit that strives to give kids a transformative experience through jazz performance, education and community.
