    Marcus Miller has a resume most people in the music world would envy. Miller is a bassist who's also a producer, arranger, composer (including movie soundtracks), and multi-instrumentalist who has appeared on over 200 albums. His first for Concord, MARCUS, is a savory stew of jazz, funk, pop, and R&B. There are lean, stirring versions of classics by Stevie Wonder ("Higher Ground") and Tower of Power ("What Is Hip"), soothing vocals from Corrine Bailey Rae, and a tip of the hat to Miller's old boss Miles Davis ("Jean-Pierre"). Add the saxophones of David Sanborn and Tom Scott to the mix and one has a recipe for some nifty, debonair, groove-centric jazz.

  • Critic Reviews
    Down Beat (p.70) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Miller lets it rip with all manner of strip-slapping grooviness over robo-tough drum grooves."
    JazzTimes (p.102) - "[He] unleashes his inimitable chops on hard-hitting instrumentals like the Indian-flavored 'Blast'....He also turns in a moving rendition of the Broadway tune and oft-covered jazz standard 'When I Fall in Love'..."
