Marcus Miller

Sunday 12th November

You’ve heard Marcus Miller’s bass playing – a combination of funk, groove, soul and pure technical skills – on classic R&B and soul records. Now see him play live.

 

Miller’s distinctive style means he’s been referred to as one of the most significant bass players in jazz, R&B, fusion and soul.

At the top of his game for over 30 years, he is a two-time Grammy Award winner, winner of the Edison Award for Lifetime Achievement in Jazz, and in 2013 was appointed a UNESCO Artist For Peace.

His characteristic bass sound can be heard on a limitless catalogue of musical hits – including Bill Withers ’Just The Two Of Us’, Luther Vandross’ ‘Never Too Much’ and songs from Chaka Khan, David Sanborn, Herbie Hancock, Eric Clapton, Aretha Franklin, George Benson, Elton John and Bryan Ferry.

Miller is the performer/composer/producer and arranger of ten critically acclaimed solo projects, among them The Sun Don’t Lie (featuring Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter) and recent album Laid Black, incorporating more modern elements from trap, hip-hop, R&B and gospel.

Opening the night is visionary saxophonist, composer, bandleader and innovator, Camilla George. Her strong cultural roots and love of fusing African and Western music has informed her own unique style, a key reason why she is a firm fixture on the new London jazz scene.
