picked this CD up in a music shop in Ginza area. this was issued by Victor of Japan.
this is one of Miller's best. the music is rich, with diversity and depth.
from Miller's own Blast! to brasilian samba, from Miles to Jimmy Dorsey all interpreted with great intelligence.
the orchestral backing by Philharmonic Monte Carlo adds dimension and richness of the overall presentation.
i don't buy many CDs especially given today's economy.
however, after listened to the entire CD at the shop twice,
i decided to make some sacrifice and put down my hard earned $30.
thanks to Victor which always delivers high quality jazz.

The artistic genius of Marcus Miller sweeps through the nine tracks from the Monte-Carlo Jazz Festival on November 29, 2008, which features his quartet and the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra, along with special guests Roy Hargrove (trumpet) and Raul Midón (vocals, guitar).

The opening gems - "Blast!," "So What," "State of Mind," "I Loves You Porgy," "Amandla" - deliver the elements of funk, hip-hop and pop, with a strong vibe from Miles Davis lighting the stage. The closing superfecta of "I'm Glad There is You," "Medley: O Mio Babbino Caro/Mas Que Nada," "Your Amazing Grace" and "Strange Fruit" are built on orchestral textures that are enhanced by the sharp, studio-like mix and production.

For nearly 40 years, Miller has been refining his work as a composer, arranger, producer and musician. This special performance brings renewed focus and appreciation to his amazing career.

I'm a big Marcus fan, see him live whenever he's nearby. This one was quite interesting with the symphony accompaniment. I prefer Marcus my man a bit grittier buy, hey, a bit of innovation goes a long way.

Buy it, you'll like it!!

I'm a huge Marcus fan. I received advanced notice of this CD project which was recorded live in Monaco and now is released for our listening pleasure. Project starts with a great LIVE version of Blast...Marcus rips it!!!! Several other highlights is Raul Midon's vocal and guitar talent on State of Mind, Roy Hargrove's trumpet on the Miles Davis hit SO WHAT and Raul Midon singing to Marcus's Amazing Grace score....LOVE teh entire project!!!

I have followed the work of Marcus Miller since the late 1970s. He is one of the greatest musicians ever and as had a tremendous impact on my quality of life. He can continue to reinterpret and reexamine the work of Miles, his writings for Miles and others, as well as his solo work for as long as he lives. It will always be fresh.

The album this album reminds me of most is Chuck Mangione's "Friends and Love" back in 1971. Like this work, that one was a live show backed by a full orchestra--the one in my home town of Rochester NY. In this case, we get the Monte Carlo Philharmonic backing Marcus. From the very first track, this album telegraphs the fact that this show is not going to be just another funk jazz gig. Even though album after album of that particular genre is why I'm a steady fan of Marcus' and I've been one since his work with Miles Davis. Enough that seeing the name and album title on a Jazziz sampler disc was enough to send me over here on a search for it. I'm not going to go through a wearying track-by-track analysis that only duplicates some other customer's effort, but the opener "Blast" shows Marcus shares with Zeppelin's Jimmy Page a solid interest in North African tonalities and scaling. Add that to the slap and near-slap sound we're used to from him and you've got a whole 'nother "fusion" sound connected with jazz. Another standout is Gershwin's "I Love You Porgy" as a statement that Marcus may have a sound that might draw a few hip hop fans, but he also knows jazz was invented well before his generation. I mean, just for grins, I wouldn't mind hearing him tackle a Dixieland song. And of course later on in this album we get one of those masterpieces from his Miles era--"Amandla", another indicator that The Man's signature trumpet chops were so essential to Marcus when he wrote the number that he used a guy who could handle them here--Patches Stewart. No, this album isn't live versions of stuff from "The Sun Don't Lie" or "Tales". But what you're getting here is a different sound--Marcus Miller going for a BIG sound.

Marcus Miller: The ONLY Artist I can consistently expect to still be playing when I get back in the car when my wife has been driving at length! I was reminded of this album when I was looking for a Christmas present for my pastor, who happens to be a phenomenal bass player. Long story short, he already had it, it ended up on my wish list and subsequently among my presents. We put in A Night In Monte Carlo for our annual pilgrimage across California on Christmas afternoon. That was over two weeks and a thousand miles ago. I've been sick and laid up in the house most of that time (including the trip home). Marcus is still playing... And at least during one of the few times when I was both in the car and conscious I heard my wife say, most appropriately, "That's just sick!"

Marcus and the Band plus Roy Hargrove & Raul Midon AND the Orchestra.
Plenty of nasty and tasty improv. Interwoven are some sick unison lines that carry so much force with the weight of Marcus' Bass (capitalized intentionally) the band and orchestra. Stanky, quirky, butter smooth, lyrical, haunting, jaw-dropping, ruthless, beautiful, funky....SIQUE! In all it's a work of art, a master class in multiple bass techniques and arrangement, composition, orchestration, interpretation...AND great for DATE NIGHT!

Granted my wife is musical, but not nearly the funk/fusion head that I am. I play a lot of "musician music" around the house and in the car, Yellowjackets, Karizma, Ricky Peterson, George Benson, Miles, Trane... But I only expect Marcus to still be playing when I get back to the car.
