Album Review

Like Quincy Jones, Marcus Miller has the ability to bring together highly individual artists from several areas of music and somehow get them to fit comfortably in his projects. In addition, Miller can uplift what could be a simple funk piece and make it of interest to jazz listeners through his musicianship, creativity, and imagination. On Marcus, he uses different personnel and instrumentations on each selection, playing a bewildering assortment of instruments himself in addition to his distinctive electric bass. Some of the pieces, particularly ones that feature the singing of Lalah Hathaway and the Ivey Sisters, are essentially R&B although usually with a curve thrown in. Some selections have Miller heading what sounds like Miles Davis' last band (with Michael "Patches" Stewart in Miles' place), and there are features for his atmospheric bass clarinet playing. David Sanborn fares well during his two appearances, and Tom Scott stops by for a cameo, as does bluesman Keb' Mo', and one should not overlook the harmonica playing of Gregoire Maret. Listeners who enjoy creative funk will certainly enjoy this eclectic program.

Customer Reviews

Marcus Miller is a genius and his time had come!

There is not another jazz musician that inspires me so much. This CD was just released in the US after much success in other countries. I have counted down the days to buy this. It's his best effort ever and I truly believe it will make him a household name. Marcus good friend Herbie won the grammy this year but with this cd...it should be Marcus turn at the next grammy awards! Can't say enough about every single track and the perfection of the entire cd.

I hate you Marcus :)

Just when you think you've Marcus' chops and his "style" down, he comes out with new music that completely floors you. You can't put Marcus in a box. He constantly seems to reinvent himself. The album is great from start to finish. Trust me. You will not be disappointed!

I LOVE MARCUS MILLER!

Primarily a bassist, multi-instrumentalist, and producer, Marcus Miller has worked on hundreds of sessions -- crossing jazz, R&B, and rock -- and has released several solo recordings since his late-'70s beginnings with Bobbi Humphrey and Lonnie Liston Smith. Despite the many hats he has worn -- improviser, interpreter, arranger, songwriter, film-music composer, bassist, clarinetist, saxophonist -- none of them have been put on for the sake of a whim. Never one to merely get his feet wet, Miller has...
