Last week I had the opportunity to record under the production of Marcus Miller for alto saxophonist Alex Han in Falls Church, VA. Marcus received Grammy Awards as a producer for Miles Davis, Luther Vandross, David Sanborn, Bob James, Chaka Khan and Wayne Shorter. He won a Grammy Award for Best R&B Song in 1992, for Luther Vandross’ “Power of Love” and in 2001 he won for Best Contemporary Jazz Album for his fourth solo instrumental album, M2. In 2011 I also had the opportunity to perform in the Tribute To Miles group led by Marcus alongside Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter and trumpeter Sean Jones. Being that Marcus is one of the world’s greatest producers as well as bassists and composers, I got the chance at the end of last week’s sessions to capture a bit of Marcus discussing what he looks for and expects in a drummer! A must see.
