LEAP Alumni deliver projects across the country, engaging new audiences
17th Jan 2020
One of the most influential artists of our time, the superstar of fusion, funk, soul and jazz, Marcus Miller returns to Royal Festival Hall on Sunday 26 May 2019 with his genre-defying album Laid Black.
With this project Marcus Miller pursues a musical mix incorporating more modern, urban elements into his sound from trap, hiphop, R&B to gospel.
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.
Miller’s powerful, jazz/funk bass playing, pushing boundaries and taking jazz to new levels, his pursuit of discovering and working with young talents and his force of nature live performances made him a major inspiration to the next jazz generation.
