Marcus Miller + Support
Royal Festival Hall, London.
Returning to London for the first time since his storming Afrodeezia show in 2015 - 'the emotional peaks at times reached the ecstatic' (Financial Times) - the master composer, bassist and leader brings a brand new set - the latest statement from a jazz hero for the 21st century. In a career stretching back to the 70s, Marcus Miller has worked with a hit list of the past half century's musical movers and shakers, from Aretha Franklin to Luther Vandross, from Dizzy Gillespie to Wayne Shorter, from Eric Clapton to Donald Fagen - and, crucially, was the producer and collaborator on Miles Davis' brilliant final albums. Now, he's become a major inspiration to the next jazz generation, and a live performer who simply takes the audience's breath away.
