MARCUS MILLER picture
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.

MARCUS MILLER Suddenly

Album · 1983 · RnB

Rokukai
Take the last three letters in slick and here's what you get. Little of Marcus Miller's multi intrumental prowess is shown off here--basically, it's a debut already treading water, lost in a sea of boring smooth jazz R/B quiet storm. There's some funky bits and some flourishes that suggest Miller had a true vision for his talents, but these are few and far between, and get lost in the wash. The highlight, if you can call it that, is the minor hit "Much too Much". It's the second song on the disc--good luck getting there.

Miller's hybrid is much better realized on his second, self-titled release the following year
