Doug Miller‘s new CD, Regeneration, was just reviewed on All About Jazz.com.
Miller’s bass playing is featured prominently throughout with arco and pizzicato soloing. It is his unaccompanied bass reading of “Bye Bye Blackbird,” however, that really sums up what his playing is all about: no-nonsense, punchy and swinging. The influence of heavy hitter’s like bassists Ray Brown and John Clayton is made obvious through nicely-phrased blues licks, double stops and chords.
This music is both interesting and fun. Miller and company come across as a strong, like-minded unit.
