Marcus Miller: Electric Miles

Miles Davis’ “electric period” is one of the most influential and passionately debated eras in all of modern music. In this exclusive new program, one of Davis’ crucial collaborators—bassist Marcus Miller—will take audiences through an eclectic body of work, starting with the moment Davis first discovered electric piano in 1969. Not only did Miller play bass on six of Davis’ studio albums, he also produced and composed almost every song on three of them, including the Grammy Award-winning Tutu. Miller and his band will lead a wide-ranging exploration of Davis’ bold experiments with jazz, rock, funk, hip-hop, and electronic fusions that continue to resonate and inform music today.
