New York, NY (October 14, 2022) – Steve Miller, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee, makes his long-awaited return to Jazz at Lincoln Center to perform Steve Miller on Steve Miller: A Blues and Rock and Roll Journey at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Rose Theater on November 11-12 at 8:00 p.m.

Steve’s concerts at Jazz at Lincoln Center are perennial favorites as he performs a unique repertoire to celebrate his heroes from the great blues music highway. For the first time at Jazz at Lincoln Center, he will be joined by members of the Steve Miller Band: Kenny Lee Lewis on bass, Joseph Wooten on keyboards, Jacob Petersen on guitar, and Ron Wikso on drums. Special guest jazz musicians include Carlos Henriquez on bass, Shelly Berg on piano and arrangements, Sherman Irby on alto saxophone, Craig Handy on tenor saxophone, Mike Rodriguez on trumpet, and Brian Nova on guitar. Together, the dynamic group will demonstrate how Steve’s blues heroes influenced his own music.

Steve Miller was a mainstay of the San Francisco music scene that upended American culture in the late '60s. With albums like Children of the Future, Sailor and Brave New World, Miller perfected a psychedelic blues sound that drew on the deepest sources of American roots music and simultaneously articulated a compelling vision of what music - and, indeed, society - could be in the years to come. Then, beginning in the '70s, Miller crafted a brand of pure pop that was polished, exciting and irresistible - and that dominated radio in a way that few artists have ever managed. Hit followed hit in what seemed like an endless flow: “The Joker,” "Take The Money and Run," "Rock'n Me," "Fly Like an Eagle," "Jet Airliner" and “Abracadabra” among them. To this day, those songs are instantly recognizable and impossible not to sing along with.  Running through Miller's distinctive catalog is a combination of virtuosity and song craft. His parents were jazz aficionados - not to mention close friends of Les Paul and Mary Ford - so, as a budding guitarist, Miller absorbed valuable lessons from that musical tradition. When the family moved to Texas, Miller deepened his education in the blues with family friend T- Bone Walker. Miller then moved for a time to Chicago, where he played with Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Junior Wells, James Cotton and Paul Butterfield.  That range of sources informs his music to this day on his successful tours with the Steve Miller Band.

In the course of his career, Miller has sold tens of millions of records and his music has been streamed several billion times. With each listen the beauty and immediacy of his work, whether at its most playful or most serious, is palpable. As always, whether he was riding the top of the charts or traveling the endless blue highways of American music, you can hear him playing and singing with conviction and precision, passion and eloquence, making music that is at once immediately accessible, thrillingly alive in the present, and more than able to stand the test of time. 

As a member of the Board of Directors at Jazz at Lincoln Center, he has curated and headlined a series of shows that explore themes like the bridge from blues to jazz in the music of guitar great T-Bone Walker; the distinctive sounds of the blues triangle of Memphis, Texas and Chicago; the resonances between the singular musical creations of Ma Rainey and Miles Davis; the deep American roots music of Appalachia; and Cannonball Adderley and the Blues. In addition, at the request of Wynton Marsalis, he is defining a blues pedagogy for Jazz at Lincoln Center.
