Marcus Miller: Bassist, producer and all-round jazz legend
Date created :
At the tail end of a world tour to promote his latest album “Laid Black”, bassist Marcus Miller talks to FRANCE 24 about the importance of musical collaboration, his desire to acknowledge the darker parts of black history, and how his genre-defying music has roots in his New York upbringing. Over the years, Miller has produced music with the biggest names in jazz, RnB and soul - among them Bill Withers, Aretha Franklin and Miles Davis.
Miller tells FRANCE 24 what he’s learnt from these brushes with musical royalty.
