ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Out of the blue Peter Muller released his debut album in 2003 and it already became a "Bass Classic".

Muller is probably the most exciting new bass player on the Jazz/Funk/Fusion market. His CD is a journey through all facets of contemporary electric bass playing, great musicians are featured, for example Britains sax legend Frank Mead and Barbara Dennerleins trumpet player Christian Kappe.

Besides his outstanding bass playing Peter Muller obtained a great reputation as a producer and sound engineer with his debut "M-Vibez".

Peter Muller was born on the 6th October 1969 and grew up in a musical family. His father played acoustic bass and piano and so Peter came into contact with Jazz very early. He started to learn classical acoustic guitar at the age of nine, taking lessons for about five years. It was during this period that he became interested in funk music. His ears were totally drawn to the sound of the bass and he started to slap on his guitar, trying to sound like all the contemporary bass players he was hearing.
Peter grabbed at the chance when a friend of his father's offered him an old Hoefner electric bass guitar and from then on concentrated solely on bass. He listened to just about everything he could, learning from players like Mark King, Stanley Clarke and Marcus Miller. Eventually he decided that he needed a bass more suited to the kind of music he was in to. So in 1983, at the age of 14, he bought the second hand Fender Jazz Bass (Serial No. S8852622) that is still his main instrument today.
He became a professional musician in 1987 and like most professionals played all kinds of gigs in all kinds of musical situations. Subsequently he toured all over Europe and undertook many studio sessions. Peter became a popular bass player, favoured for his heavy groove and his passion for funk. In the second half of the 90`s he discovered his composing skills and started to write is own music. He also felt that producing music could be an interesting new perspective for him.
In 2000 he became member of the Frank Mead Band, which was an important step in his development as an artist.
In 2001 he put his own studio, "Wave Island", together and it was only a few months later that he decided it was finally time to release his first album, which eventually took over a year to complete. When Frank heard the initial results in 2002, he was so knocked out that he offered to play saxophone on the album. Later that year Frank asked Peter to produce his own debut album. They worked on both CDs in the first half on 2003 and when they were finished, Peter decided to found his own label, "MULLENNIUM RECORDS". Both albums were finally released in July 2003.

Here`s what Peter says about M-Vibez:

"M-Vibez" is about the vibrations i've soaked up during my life so far - sights, sounds and feelings - listen closely and you might see them , hear them and feel them too" - Peter Muller

Yes - that's true. A lot of people ask me what "M-Vibez" means or stands for. Well the M says everything: My Vibes, Muller Vibes. It`s a mixture of the variety of music I dig. Jazz, Funk, Soul, R & B, Hip Hop, African and Latin Vibes as well. I've been travelling a lot, and you can hear impressions of where I've been and what I feel. And finally everybody notices that I started the album off with a tune "for Marcus", and yes, I mean Marcus Miller.

If I had to describe the influences in my bass playing, I would definitely mention names like Stanley Clarke, Mark King, Doug Wimbish, Victor Bailey. But Marcus Miller has always affected and inspired me the max. I remember when I started to play bass, I went to a record store and asked for some "real bass records". They proposed some albums amongst which was Marcus. When I heard his music I was totally knocked out, and I was so kicked by the Fender Sound that I bought a Jazz Bass myself.
Later on I would say that "Tutu" had completely changed my life. It opened the door to fusion for me. Marcus always comes up with something new and he's the bass player with the most recognized sound. I always have an ear out for what he's doing, because it's just plain brilliant! That's why I decided to write a tune called "Trigger (for Marcus)" and to open the album with it.

BIG CRAIG

ALA MARCUS
GOSPEL BASSIST, FUNK BASSIST, JAZZ BASSIST, R&B BASSIST WHAT EVER! YOU NEED TO HAVE THIS CD. THERE ARE ALOT OF REVIEWS ON THIS SITE AND THEY AIN'T LYING!

I always knew music is a universal language ..... I have now experienced it.
I originally listened to Peter's samples. I liked what I heard. I'm a little slow so I put all the mp3 samples on a CD and listened to them in the car for a while. I wanted to really hear what he was doing from a bassist, artist, recording technique, project, and musical standpoint. I was impressed in all those points. I finally bought the CD. Now I find myself trying to learn how Peter put this project together and have been inspired in my own musical journey. Peter's muscic has given me much help and motivation with my own projects. Thanks Peter for great music, great melodies, great recording, and great musical backing. I always knew music is a universal language ..... I have now experienced it. Peter's music has peaked my interest in Jazz/Funk in other coutries. I look forward to that new journey.

This guy kicks
I have just finished listening to this for the first time, but it is already worthy of a review it is that good.This guy really can play that bass you really can tell his main hero is Marcus Miller but that is a major positive too me as Mr Miller is a bass god.Great sound great arrangements this is a must buy.

Wonder B

Awesome and beautiful
I love Marcus Miller but I think this is the album I wish he had done! Peter is just an awesome player plus he produces and mixes and just does anything here with an awesome talent. One of the best albums I have bought in the past 10 years (and I have over 10 000) The tunes show great originality (check Eastbound) and cosmic skills on bass is what P.M is about... can't wait to see him live in Paris...

Karim Yengsep

Craftsmanship, style, hipness, funk -- it's all here.
Excellent execution of the material, very well arranged and produced work. I take the resemblance to Marcus Miller as Peter Muller's compliment to a great artist. The original compositions are interesting and refreshing. My favorite is "Peaceful World." Peace. Recommended!

Morten Melsom

Best fusion album of the year!
Great songs, great playing, great sound. Just buy it!

Michael Payne

WOW!!
I got this cd about 3 weeks ago... still playing in every vehicle I own. Off the chisel playing, arrangements and inventive hooks. Kasbah and Eastbound are even my children favorites. I have already learned some of the melody lines and solos (I am a bass player). This is a great product. If need some funk with those fries get this CD.

samuel morgan
