ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jeffrey Miller was born in the Bronx and raised on Long Island. At Adelphi University, Jeffrey created the lead role in SACRIMMORALINORITY -- AN IMMORAL MUSICAL ON THE MORAL MAJORITY, the very first musical by the late Jonathan Larson, the creator of RENT. After receiving his BFA in acting, Jeffrey suppressed his desire to perform in favor of weekly paychecks at his uncle's Manhattan hair salon. Not content with merely shearing the heads of his Tony- and Oscar-winning clients, Jeffrey took a plunge and produced his first CD, appropriately entitled "Jeffrey." It brought his music to hundreds of his clients and led to very encouraging turndowns by executives at Atlantic and Sony Classics who were most impressed with Jeffrey's repertoire. The fans at OutVoice.com put the CD at #l in their weekly top-ten listing, and WAZR, based in Washington, D.C., constructed an entire program around "Jeffrey."
Since then, Jeffrey has made his cabaret debut at Judy's Chelsea in his critically lauded show, I LOVE TO SING!. David Hurst at Show Business raved, "An engaging performer with unaffected style and sexy charisma." Laurie Lawson at the Electronick Link Journey added that Jeffrey is "the complete cabaret package -- a stage presence that just won't quit." Praised by David Finkle in Backstage for his "engaging sense of humor and deft phrasing," Jeffrey shifts effortlessly from Puccini and Verdi arias to Cy Coleman, the Beatles, and Simon & Garfunkel.
After subsequently performing I LOVE TO SING! at Danny's Skylight Room Cabaret in NYC, Jeffrey premiered his new cabaret entitled I GOTTA ROAM! at Danny's on January 12, 2005. As a result, Jeffrey was invited to sing at the Mabel Mercer's 20th Anniversary Cabaret Convention at Frederick P. Rose Hall at Lincoln Center on October 20, 2005.
BACKSTAGE said:
"His beautiful and expressive voice immediately set an expectation of high standards....Classically trained, he has an engaging, crowd-pleasing style that makes him a real standout.....Miller's readings of "The Bonny Earl o' Moray" and "Recondita Armonia" from Puccini's Tosca were as perfect as it gets. This is a voice to be reckoned with."
--John Hoglund
He was listed and pictured under TOP LIVE SHOWS in TIME OUT magazine, and here's what they had to say:
"Now the reedy-voiced, endearingly droll tenor is back in the fire with his third recent cabaret engagement, presenting I GOTTA ROAM!, a whirlwind array of travel songs.  Pouring out his heart with arms held wide, this Hebraic cutie combines the wiry physicality of a young Danny Kaye with Al Jolson's smiling-through-your-tears pathos.  Accompanied gracefully by his sidekick, pianist David Brunetti, Miller breezes through comedy both high (Dave Frishberg's "Another Song About Paris," Sondheim's "What Do We Do? We Fly!") and low (David Buskin's "Jews Don't Camp"); sings majestic ballads by Brel and Weill in their original languages; and even does a credible version of "Una furtiva lagrima," the hit aria from Donizetti's L'ELISIR D'AMORE.
Along the way, he brings out the irony of flying away from your troubles.  In one of several bittersweet asides, he quotes Horace's take on the problem with most travelers: "They change their skies, but not their souls." 
--James Gavin

great selections/great voice
Jeffrey Miller has one of those wonderful, rich voices that can thrill or soothe. I loved his selection on this cd: some classical, some Broadway. A good mix, and it really shows off his strengths. Where is this man now and what is he doing? Why hasn't he recorded again?

Sobrina Simmons

Beautifully done
Jeffrey sings with great sensitivity, no matter what the genre of the music. I have shared his music with several friends and family members who all found it outstanding. I hope he produces another CD soon, although I could listen to this endlessly.
