[Listen to Marcus Miller in the Nextplayer]

Bassist, producer, composer, and all-around musician Marcus Miller has been a student and a leader, a creator and an interpreter, a master and a mentor in the art form of music – from his teen years to the present – with many more miles to go before he sleeps…a profound past paving the way to an as yet unfathomable future. Marcus continues this legacy with A Night in Monte-Carlo, a live audio document of an amazing concert he was commissioned to perform on November 29, 2008 in the “rich man’s playground” of Monaco – a performance of music of his choice, much of it from his pen, featuring his arrangements for symphony orchestra. A Night In Monte-Carlo (CJA-32660-02) will be released February 1st, 2011 on Concord Jazz, a division of the Concord Music Group. It features Marcus leading both his quartet and the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra, with special guests: trumpeter Roy Hargrove as well as singer, songwriter and guitarist Raul Midon. “I was invited by Jean-René Palacio, the Artistic Director for the principality of Monaco to present some of my music with the orchestra on the French Riviera,” Marcus recalls. No stranger to the area, as he has performed there many times AND played there on his downtime as a race car buff during the Grand Prix, Marcus relished the opportunity of sharing his music in the breathtaking and intimate 600-seat Monte-Carlo Opera House.

“Marcus is so hip and into the music that he even walks in tempo.” - Miles Davis

For once, I'm genuinely speechless. It is an unbelievable (I should say unbearable) honor to welcome [Marcus Miller] to Nextbop. The dude was hand-picked by Miles "Fucking" Davis to be one of the torchbearers of this art. Never would I have thought that Nextbop would be getting props from someone like him, when we first conceived this project over 3 years ago.
