Album Notes
“In a town full of excellent bass players (Washington DC), Kent Miller is not one of flashiest. He's not even a terribly frequent soloist; Miller's mastery takes a far more important path. First, he holds the beat, a dying art in many corners of contemporary jazz—he doesn't play around the beat, he doesn't subvert it, he doesn't leave it to the drummer, he gets right to the center of it with low, hearty thumps. Just as importantly, Miller adds dimension to the music. A jazz band without a good bass line is like an object that casts no shadow, and Miller lays out that shadow as effectively as perhaps any D.C. bassist this side of the late Keter Betts. When he does solo, though, strap yourself in for something glorious. Even so, keep your ear on that beat: Miller will never fail it.”
