Marcus Miller + Carleen Anderson
LONDON Southbank Centre / Royal Festival Hall
Funk, soul and jazz collide in spectacular style in the music of Marcus Miller. He’s worked as performer and producer with Aretha Franklin, Roberta Flack and Frank Sinatra and a host of others – and, crucially, he was Miles Davis’ right-hand man for the last nine years of the trumpeter’s life.
Live, he leads a blistering band of young talent, with his own irresistible bass grooves driving from the front. Vocalist of the year in this year’s Jazz FM Awards, Carleen Anderson brings her soaring voice and electrifying stage presence to the opening set.
'A tremendously exciting gig that won an immediate standing ovation.' ***** (Financial Times)
'Miller is one of a few contemporary artists who is something of a unifying force among different strands of black music and the latest set shows that his powers of cohesion are really still as strong as they ever were.' **** (Jazzwise)
Marcus Miller is joined by the 2013 Jazz FM UK Vocalist of the YearCarleen Anderson, singer with The Brand New Heavies, who brings her soaring voice and electrifying stage presence to the opening set."For live performances, you absolutely have to see Carleen Anderson - at least 3 times in your life!"
