Number Two Express is the second studio album by American jazz bassist Christian McBride. It was recorded in 1995 and released by Polygram Records the following year.
Bill Kohlhaase of The Los Angeles Times wrote "Bass sensation Christian McBride has followed his well-received debut album, "Gettin' to It," with a surprisingly modern album that shows him moving ahead in taste and ambition. While the first album focused on soulful sounds and its leader's gutbucket pluck, the new disc plunges hard ahead with smarts, sizzle and fine interplay between celebrity players including pianists Chick Corea and Kenny Barron, saxophonists Gary Bartz and Kenny Garrett, vibist Steve Nelson and drummer Jack DeJohnette (playing with Corea for the first time since their Miles Davis days). Not only has McBride's material become more sophisticated, his improvisations have also progressed a notch. They're not so reliant on riffs and repetition."
