Jesse McBride, a talented and adventurous pianist and bandleader, is often compared to the late Art Blakey for his determination to encourage and develop young talent.

Originally from Houston, McBride started playing music on violin at age 4, going on to win numerous competitions. He took up piano while studying at the Houston High School for the Performing and Visual Arts. He came to New Orleans to study at the University of New Orleans with Ellis Marsalis.

It was at UNO that McBride began an association with the late Harold Battiste, who encouraged McBride to carry the mantle of his Next Generation project. While studying, and later teaching at UNO, and then at Tulane University, McBride has continued the tradition of helping young artists develop a personal voice in music.
