Drum-Free Surprise 

Christian McBride at Yoshi's.

The most renowned younger-generation jazz bassist, Christian McBride, has accompanied all the greats. As a leader, he brings his new band, A Christian McBride Situation, to Yoshi's Thursday through Sunday, and it's a band with a difference. If there's one constant in jazz, it's that you have to have a drummer. Not this time. With McBride on bass, the group features multi-keyboardist Patrice Rushen, our own tenor saxophonist Dave Ellis, and DJ Jahi Sundance on turntables. For someone who knows every jazz standard in the book from Ellington to Coltrane, this is a departure promising plenty of surprises. Thursday-Saturday, July 26-28, 8 and 10 p.m.; and Sunday, July 29, 7 and 9 p.m. $12-$24. Yoshis.com
