Album Notes
John Miller recorded his first solo album, "First Degree Blues", in 1971, at the age of 21. In the course of the '70s, he recorded four more solo albums for Blue Goose Records and Rounder Records, moving from the Country Blues he started out in and ending up with "Biding My Time, John Miller Plays George Gershwin", in 1978. Then, silence.
In February of 2004, John released "Hey There", a collection of Jazz Standards, his first solo recording in 25 years. How did the recording come to be? John tells us, "I was touring in Japan in 2001 with the great mandolinist, John Reischman, and I met a fan of my '70s recordings, Kazi Goda. We visited and talked for a while, and Kazi asked me why I had quit doing solo recordings. I didn't have any very good answer, and he told me, "You have to make a new solo CD!" something about the certainty with which he said that made me feel like, "You know, he's right." I made the CD and I think it's the best work I've ever done. I hope you enjoy it."

Billy Lowgrand

a master at work, no doubt about it
"The more you listen, the better it gets", one might say. That's because there's so much to hear! Miller's musicality runs deep, so don't worry if you don't hear it all first time through. Ain't many recordings where a flattop guitar gets to do all that it does here--beautiful arrangements, delivered with verve and joy.

Incredible guitar work!
John Miller is a genius on guitar. "The Nearness of You" is one of my all-time favorite guitar solos. (Check out the sample track on his web page.) The whole CD is great, incredible rhythmic grooves, inventive guitar work. Rewards careful and repeated listening.
