Legendary bassist, composer, producer and two-time Grammy winner Marcus Miller pursues yet another creative avenue with “Miller Time,” his new show on SiriusXM’s Real Jazz featuring acoustic and electric jazz and anecdotes about the many stars with whom he’s worked intimately including Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, David Sanborn and his long time writing partner, the late Luther Vandross. The two hour show airs every Sunday at 6 pm and Tuesdays at midnight.
In 2012, Miller returned to composing and exploring new music of his own on his latest release Renaissance with a sharper focus than ever before, a new band of curious and like-minded young musicians, and a mission to travel the world – country by country, city by city, venue by venue – to take the message of this musical movement straight to the hearts, souls and minds of the people. Renaissance has been nominated for a 2013 NAACP Image Award in the category of Outstanding Jazz Album.
Marcus Miller will also be co-hosting the Smooth Jazz Cruise 2013 later this month.
