Marcus Miller + Ashley Henry
The master composer, bassist and leader brings his latest statement to the EFG London Jazz Festival.
In a career stretching back to the 1970s, Miller has worked with many of the past half-century’s greatest artists, including Aretha Franklin, Herbie Hancock and Eric Clapton. His place in music history was already assured back in the 1980s, when he served as producer and collaborator on some of Miles Davis’ brilliant final albums.
Through his jazz compositions and multi-instrumentalist live performances, he has become a major inspiration for the next jazz generation, and a standard bearer for jazz aficionados everywhere.
Opening set from Ashley Henry – one of a new generation of musicians that have been raised with a wide range of influences; his listening and visual styles range from Sinead Harnett and Digital Underground to ZuZu and Margot Fonteyn.
