Marcus Miller has visited Britain for various Jazz festivals, when tracks from this album have been in rotation on Jazz FM and this is quite a unique mix of different types of music.

You have Marcus' regular band, who can do Jazz and Funk as well as mixing elements of Hip Hop through DJ Logic on TurnTables. But for this live performance in Monaco, they are backed by a full orchestra and are joined by star guests from the Jazz world.

All the orchestral arrangements were written by Marcus himself and these really stand out on "So What" - which captures the sound created by Miles and Bill Evans, but then moves into a funky version of the tune with virtuosic solos from the band and Marcus himself riffing back and forth with the orchestra. Improvisation is not normally something associated with orchestral arrangments - but here it works very well to create something very exciting.

The tunes vary between funky grooves and Jazzy ballads, but Marcus is central to everything. First of the guests is Raul Midon on guitar and vocals - he sounds amazing, but it is Marcus' funky bassline that anchors "State of Mind".

In "I Love you Porgy" we hear Marcus's other side - he switches to a fretless bass sound reminiscent of Jaco Pastorius and plays expressively.The whole thing ends up sounding like Weather Report, but with the orchestra taking the role of Joe Zawinul's electronic keyboards.

Roy Hargrove, who leads his own bands, joins in here on trumpet for "Amandla", a tribute to the work that Marcus did with Miles Davis, late in his career. Again the music varies between gentle Jazz ballad to funk work-out and by "Mas Que Nada", sees Marcus really steal the show!

having waited a while for this cd i was not disappointed.
The homage paid to Miles Davis is fantastic. if only Marcus had been
around in the early 60's who knows. The performance finishes of with
Your Amazing Grace and Strange Fruit which are given a real
haunting sound. Worth every penny. Can'ty wait to see him
live again.
