Album Notes
Guitarist/Composer Jane Miller has released her third CD, consisting entirely of new original contemporary Jazz Instrumentals.

The compositions and arrangements are brilliantly executed by the stellar group of Boston area musicians (Jane Miller-guitars, percussion, piano-track 12,producer; Tim Ray-piano; Bob Simonelli-fretless electric bass; Don Kirby-drums; with guests Ken LaRoche-wood flute, percussion; and the Arriaga String Quartet).

The pairing of engineer extraordinaire Peter Kontrimas with assistant producer Lauren Passarelli has resulted in a clean bold sound, providing the perfect vehicle for this material.

The selections range from jazz ensemble playing and improvisation to bossa nova, to folk and rock influenced grooves with strong melodies throughout.

Also included is Miller's debut writing for strings, beautifully performed by the Arriaga String Quartet.

Chuck Schwager

I have been listening to The Other Room for two months now
and think it is Miller's best work to date. The melodies are
wonderful and the arrangements bring out both the melody and
the rhythm in a fine way. Egberto is so soft and silky and It's
OK and Home from Chicago slip under the skin like a pinprick
and cause the foot to tap.

The final tune with the string quartet is brilliant in
conception and execution. The melody is achingly beautiful
and the use of the quartet works perfectly. I do believe
she could write classical music if she chose to! Next CD,
please expand this melody to last at least ten minutes,
my CD player is angry with me for pressing the repeat
button 3 times for that cut.

These songs seem to have an inevitability to them -
nothing is out of place - and this compliment is one of
the highest I can give, because Berstein used the term
"inevitability" to describe Beethoven's music. I don't
rank her with Beethoven quite yet; but her tunes do have
the characteristic Beethoven quality of being absolutely
right note after note.
