Marcus Miller

Marcus Miller’s new Concord album Renaissance could easily refer to the bassist himself — a true Renaissance man who has made an indelible mark on the music as a performer, producer and composer. While still in his early 20s Miller came to prominence with his “slapping” fretless bass technique and a high-profile association with Miles Davis, producing and appearing on landmark recordings such as Tutu, Amandla and Music from Siesta. Since then he’s collaborated with an incredible array of jazz and R&B stars, including Wayne Shorter, Grover Washington Jr., David Sanborn, Bob James, Luther Vandross and Chaka Khan. As a composer, he’s written scores for more than a dozen films, such as House Party, Boomerang, Above the Rim, and more recently the Chris Rock TV series, Everybody Hates Chris. Miller is a studio legend, heard as a sideman on over 500 albums, but he’s also found time to put forth 16 records as a leader. Expect material from Renaissance  and an exciting new band.
