Dallas-based pianist/vocalist Joe McBride is known among his peers as one of the most talented individuals in the industry today. A Gift for Tomorrow, Joe's second release for Heads Up, only embellishes that reputation.

This Gift includes several tracks with McBride as vocalist which are to be reckoned with; spirited covers of pop classics like "Walking in Rhythm," "Deja Vu," and "You've Got a Friend;" and totally satisfying guest appearances by Larry Carlton, Kirk Whalum and Dave Koz.

"A Gift for Tomorrow is just as uplifting as Grace is," says Joe, "but just a bit more in tune with my R&B roots. The jazz/hip-hop hybrid is really the music of the Nineties, and I think blending the two is a logical direction for my music to take. This album digs a little deeper in terms of the playing, and shows a lot of growth from the first. The gift I offer is one of uplifting messages - I want to reach people with a sophisticated yet likeable sound that gets them away from the negative things in their lives."
