Marcus Miller


The composer, arranger and multi-instrumentalist Marcus Miller is one of the most influential musicians of his era.  Since the mid-1970s, the bassist has played on more than 500 albums and collaborated with Aretha Franklin, George Benson and Al Jarreau, not forgetting Miles Davis, for whom he wrote and produced Tutu in 1986.  Now focused on his solo career, the slap master has released over a dozen albums and composed around 20 film soundtracks.  Always keen to convey a message in addition to his unstoppable groove, his most renowned releases are Afrodeezia– a tribute to his ancestors, and Laid Back, a formidable synthesis of R&B, funk, hip-hop and jazz.  A firm favourite at the Montreux Jazz Festival since his first appearance in 1981, Marcus Miller left an indelible mark in 1997 with “Legends”, an ephemeral supergroup formed with Steve Gadd, Joe Sample, Eric Clapton and David Sanborn.
