4.0 out of 5 stars working with the best November 6, 2007
Format:Audio CD
tracks feature trios, quartets, a quintet, and on the last track a duet. the three songs not written by mcbride are piano trios, mcbride, dejohnette on drums, and chick corea on piano on corea's tones for joan's bones, and mcbride, dejohnette and kenny baron on piano on wayne shorter's miyako and ornette coleman's jayne.

alto sax players on different tracks are kenny garrett, who many listeners consider the best alto sax player of this century and the late nineties, and gary bartz, who i consider the best alto sax player of the seventies and late sixties. steve nelson, these days with dave holland's quintet and big band, is on vibes.

the last track, a recording of freddie hubbard's little sunflower, is a duet between mcbride and the french born percussionist, mino cinelu, who has played with miles davis, kenny barron, dave holland and kevin eubanks.

the lineups speak pages for the cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Outstanding And Diverse Tour De Force! March 13, 2013
Format:MP3 Music
What would be his follow-up to his highly acclaimed debut CD classic Gettin' To
It, Christian McBride delivered another world class masterpiece with his second CD
that not only showcased his energetic take on the bass, but takes the instrument
to fresh and daring new heights. What can be described as Number Two Express is
that it highly showcases his bandleading skills as well as his bass artistry for whom
he did extremely well on first hit CD, as he puts a supercharged spin on his second
blockbuster. Highlighted by a exhilarating track set starting with the action-packed
opening track Whirling Dervish, the striking momentum gets fired up as this second
album features an array of vibrant original compositions, like Youthful Bliss, EGAD,
Divergence and even his takes on several jazz standards like Chick Corea's Tones
Bones and Freddie Hubbard's Little Sunflower, which adds up to the high-swinging
artistry and passionate merit. Plus you will also get to hear a track titled A Morning
Story, where he not only plays an electric bass, but it even gives a brief glimpse of
McBride's contemporary jazz stylings that we later expected to hear from him even
though most of his material would be positively straight-ahead jazz. Headed with a
brilliant band line-up consisting of Kenny Barron, Chick Corea, Kenny Garrett, Jack
DeJohnette and Mino Cinelu, McBride again strikes up the band with dashing fun
and utmost empathy where it make Number Two Express a wonderful high-octane
success and a timeless masterpiece filled with mainstream jazz magic and original
musicianship. You don't want to miss this world class ride!

5.0 out of 5 stars A good time will be had by all (listeners). November 13, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What's to say about Christian McBride these days (or any days for that matter). He has tapped into the market for good, swinging, toe tapping, head nodding music. This is modern mainstream at its best. His fellow musicians on any of his recordings are all top notch, and McBride's sense of humor is much appreciated - it shows up in his music as well as between numbers.
