ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This CD showcases the jazz compositions of Tim Miller, a young saxophone player with old-soul chops and lots of style and personality. Tim was born and raised in Stanwood, Washington, and studied at the UNLV Fine Arts Jazz department under musicians such as Rocky Winslow, Stephan Karlsson, Russ Blevins, and Tom Warrington. Tim spent several years in Las Vegas, where he performed in nearly every casino and lounge in the city. Tim also spent a lot of time in Los Angeles as a commercial musician doing work for big band CDs. Tim has shared the stage with musicians like Buddy Greco, Johnny Pate, Roy Haynes, and Leslie Anders. Tim has had the privilege to record with jazz greats Harvey Mason, Ron Carter, Monty Alexander, Phil Woods, James Moody, Marlena Shaw, Kenny Burrell, and Shirley Horn, to name a few.

Tim has played in bands ranging from a country back-porch combo to an original free jazz organ trio and a classical saxophone quartet. Musical influences include Gene Ammons, David Liebman, Dexter Gordon, Pat Metheny, and Eddie Harris. He's a single Pisces and likes long walks on the beach and the color blue. Tim says, "if you want any more information than that, you'll have to talk dirty to me."

Other musicians on this CD include master keyboardist Kevin O'Reilly, rock-solid bassist Aeden Hunter, and multi-instrumentalist Mark Dodge on drums and guitar, plus keys and bass on "Travels."

The Reverend Jonathan Hagger

A massive album on a little label. It is our duty to tell the world.
This is a truly beautiful album and I think it might be a truly great album. I just hope it is not destined to become a great, lost album, although it's humble origins will probably mean it does not get the attention of those who could give it the exposure it deserves. It's a very soulful album but definitely not a smooth jazz outing. It's mellow but has many rough edges. Mr Miller is an extremely talented musician, and it is obviously this fact that makes the complex and challenging compositions on this album sound so effortlessly played. Finally, I believe Tim has played with some of the greats in his time. However, I doubt if they could have provided better support than the crew he has got together for his own record. An all round joy and one of my most satisfying discoveries.
