Marcus Miller has worked with some of the most legendary musicans in the world, including Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Aretha Franklin, Eric Clapton and Snoop Dogg. But on the 27th Oct he stopped by in little old Cambridge and blew the crowd away, ending in a standing ovation and thunderous calls for encores.
He performed tracks off his album Afrodeezia, and was complemented by his live band and supported by British jazz trombonist, the founder and bandleader of BadBone and Co, Dennis Rollins and his new formation Velocity Trio.
"Cold-blooded indeed. Miller is a past master at stirring up excitement with the minimum means, which he does with a half-smile that shows he’s unstirred himself. Cool cat he may be, but Miller is actually a man of deep feeling" ★★★★ - The Telegraph (Read the full review here)
"From the moment he opened up on electric bass we could feel the vibrations through our shoes, groping up our legs and filling our guts with queasiness. His was an authoritative presence, and he displayed the versatility for which he is famous by playing a range of instruments, from strings to bass saxophone with the occasional vocal line thrown in for good measure" - Cambridge News (Read the full review here)
