Electric bassist Marcus Miller has worked with everyone from Miles Davis to Michael Jackson, Frank Sinatra to Aretha Franklin and Luther Vandross among countless others, in addition to leading his own groups for decades.
While he usually plays funky electric bass, Miller keeps his music open to jazz improvising and adds creativity to any musical situation in which he appears.
This spirited performance of “Detroit” from the Marciac Jazz Festival in 2012 has Miller leading a sextet that also includes trumpeter Sean Jones, tenor-saxophonist Alex Han, keyboardist Kris Bowers, guitarist Adam Agati, and drummer Louis Cato, performing music that straddles the boundaries between jazz and funk.
