Biography

Marcus Miller (born June 14, 1959 in New York) is a jazz musician, composer and producer, perhaps best known as a bass guitarist with Miles Davis and David Sanborn. Miller is classically trained as a clarinetist, and also plays bass, keyboards, saxophone, and guitar, and is a capable singer.

Miller’s proficiency on his main instrument, the electric bass, is generally very well regarded. Not only has Miller pioneered the continuing development of a technique known as “slapping”, but his fretless bass technique has also served as an inspiration to many, and has taken the fretless bass into musical situations and genres previously unexplored with the electric bass of any description.

    "Miller’s proficiency on his main instrument, the electric bass, is generally very well regarded." Generally? Waiting for the empty punchline. Thank you for all the great music!

    One of the musicians, who is 100x better live than in studio, well it's mostly the case with jazz fusion, but after yesterday's concert I feel like it's especially relevant to Marcus. His current crew is amazing, plus Renaissance is hell of an album. I'm also glad there aren't any hip hop beats, just funky jazz rock!

    Saw him on the Smooth Jazz Cruise 2012 and I can't wait to see him again on the 2013 Cruise!
