Among the greatest electric bassists in the history of the instrument, Marcus Miller is a jazz renaissance man. A two-time GRAMMY-winning producer, arranger, keyboardist, bass clarinetist, and film composer, he was instrumental to Miles Davis’ resurgence in the 1980s and a collaborator with everyone from Dizzy Gillespie, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, and McCoy Tyner to Paul Simon, Aretha Franklin, and Luther Vandross. He returns to the Miner stage for the first time in nearly five years, performing music from across his staggering career including material from his GRAMMY-nominated 2018 Blue Note album, Laid Black.

A wildly prolific studio musician, Miller and his distinctive bass virtuosity have been heard on well over 500 sessions for a dizzying array of major artists, and as a bandleader, the Brooklyn native has found time to release 18 multifaceted albums, starting with his sparkling 1983 debut Suddenly. His soundtrack work spans decades, from 90s comedies including House Party, Eddie Murphy’s Boomerang, and Keenan Ivory Wayans’ A Low Down Dirty Shame to the Chris Rock television series Everybody Hates Chris and 2014’s About Last Night.
In 2012, Miller was named a UNESCO Artist for Peace, working to promote their Slave Route Project that contributes to a better understanding of the causes and consequences of the global slave trade.
