BEIJING PART, 10TH ANNIVERSARY OF JZ FESTIVAL 2014
MARCUS MILLER: Low End Theory
Over the past decade, the JZ Festival has grown to become the largest jazz festival in China. To commemorate their 10th Festival Anniversary, the JZ Group has put together their most distinguished lineup of world-class musicians to date in Shanghai. There are also three jazz masters’ performances in Yugong Yishan, Beijing, as a part of JZ Festival, including Jojo Mayer & Nerve, Snarky Puppy and Marcus Miller.
Marcus Miller has worked on hundreds of sessions ranging from jazz, R&B, to rock as a bassist, multi-instrumentalist, and producer. His proficiency on his main instrument, the electric bass, is highly regarded among recording circles. Marcus has released several solo records in addition to his work with trumpeter Miles Davis, pianist Herbie Hancock, singer Luther Vandross, and saxophonist David Sanborn.
Never one to merely get his feet wet, Marcus has been a utility player in the most extreme and prolific sense. His fretless bass technique has also served as an inspiration to many, and has taken the fretless bass into musical situations and genres previously unexplored with the electric bass of any description.
