Contemporary jazz, but not the plain vanilla variety. More like the double latte with cinnamon, chocolate, honey and an extra shot of espresso. Interesting, emotional, melodic and tasty.
Warning: This music should not be substituted for sleep medication. (It will not put you to sleep.)
"Several awesome musicians helped me with this album. Lee Curreri engineered and mastered in addition to helping with production and many other important aspects. Adam Hawley played the beautiful guitar parts on "Bitter Sweet Summer" and "Missing You." Ricky Rouse added electrifying rhythm and lead guitar to "Past Present" and "Funky Street." And Hillary Weiss mixed bitter with sweet in a delicious art concept and stunning design. My thanks to you all!"
Miller McMillan studied classical piano and trumpet as a child and began writing jazz while at Emory University and Berklee College of Music. He led a jazz quartet in Boston, writing the band's music and performing on electric bass. He has worked behind the scenes as a composer, arranger and producer in Atlanta, Boston and LA. With the advent of new technology he decided to share his latest inspirations with the world.
Miller writes from the heart, inspired by romance and a wealth of jazz, soul and pop influences. He uses live musicians and electronics played over infectious grooves. A fan of early jazz/junk, he interjects "retro" elements -- timeless sounds that merge with contemporary melodies and harmonies to create a totally new sound.
