As a fledgling bass player, I stand in awe at the talent of Marcus Miller. Not only does he have the lightning speed tha only a handful of players bring to the instrument, but he adds to that ability the unerring sense of when to play fast, when to lay back, and how to choose just the right note in any situation.

Had he merely been the core of some of Miles Davis' last great recordings, including Tutu, Marcus would be worthy of notice. He is a finr composer and arranger, and a leader on the bandstnd. Inshort, he is everythinh I would want to be as an electric bass player

Podcast 354 features nearly an uninterrupted Miller tune to celebrate his 53rd birthdays, including:

“Intro Duction” from Silver Rain

“3 Deuces” from The Ozell Tapes

“Boomerang” from Power

“Backyard Ritual” from Tutu Revisited (Germany 2009)

“Brazilian Rhyme” from Tales

“Pluck (Interlude)” from Marcus

“Blast!”  from Marcus

“King is Gone (for Miles)” from The Sun Don’t Lie

“Slippin’ into Darkness” from Renaissance

“Outro Duction” from Silver Rain
