Jimmy Buffett is doing it right. He has constantly taken the best from whatever the situation has been and gone on. That’s the whole point of the music to him. All through American history populist singers and humorists have served as the nation’s tickle spot, people like Will Rogers and Mark Twain. Buffett sees himself in that vein and fulfilling that sort of responsibility. “I give people a few shots. It’s as much a satirical pinprick as anything else. You just have to remind people of the day-to-day funny things,” he says. But he’s not slowing down. Watch him live from Atlanta this Tuesday to find out. Fins up!

Jazz at Lincoln Center
Grammy Award–winning bassist Christian McBride first composed for big band in 1995 as a commission for the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra.

Now a leader of his own Grammy Award–winning Big Band, featuring a staggering and diverse lineup of top musicians, McBride simultaneously shows off his compositional talent and unmatched ability to drive a band from behind the bass.
