Biography

An album entitled Renaissance is long overdue for the widely acclaimed Renaissance Man Marcus Miller. In among the most enviable careers in music, Miller is a two-time GRAMMY®-winner and the composer/producer of ten critically acclaimed and genre-defying albums (seven studio and three live). Even the most devoted follower may be astonished to realize that Renaissance is only his eighth ... Read more in Amazon's Marcus Miller Store

I agree with the previous review. Very similar to "Marcus Miller - Free". This edition encloses 5 tracks more. For completists !

This album is not the classic of his previous albums but still shows that he is going strong and is still one of the greatest bass players today! Slightly confused as this appears to be the same album as 'Free'? I think it has something to do with him using independant distributers so his albums can appear different in different countries? Strange, but very good album!!!

Smooth As Butta! 10 April 2008
By Charles L. Hubbert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The electric bass guitar never sounded so good. Anybody that is a sucker for it should know the name Marcus Miller. With more than 30 years in the business and a portfolio that includes extensive work with people like Herbie Hancock, Miles Davis, and David Sanborn, Marcus Miller has also managed a formidable solo career that spans the last 20+ years as well. And his latest release, simply titled Marcus, is a welcome addition to his discography. The brazen yet groovy flow of the album opener "Blast!" will certainly get the party going if it's not already. "Funk Joint" is a carefully-timed offering that serves up a slightly bouncy rhythm to nod your head to. The prominence of Corinne Bailey Rae's singing coupled with David Sanborn's brilliance on the sax prove to be the right mix on the cover of Deniece Williams' "Free." He continues his journey to the past with a thumping rendition of Stevie Wonder's "Higher Ground." Bluesman Keb Mo' does his thing with "Milky Way," while the interlude "Pluck" runs like an actual track. Lalah Hathaway lends her vocals for the jazz cover of Robin Thicke's "Lost Without You," a great attempt at drawing in today's younger generation. The spoken word version of the song closes the album and features actress Taraji P. Henson. Speaking of spoken word, Marcus enlists Russell Simmons' Def Poetry's own Shihan the Poet for the track "Cause I Love You." Lalah Hathaway shows up again for the smoothed out melody "Ooh." He goes full instrumentation on the stirring ballad "When I Fall In Love," the melodic "Strum," and the subdued Miles Davis cover "Jean Pierre." He closes with his interpretation of Tower of Power's "What Is Hip?" featuring David Sanborn and the aforementioned spoken word version of "Lost Without You." If you're a newcomer to the musical offerings of this Grammy Award-winning artist, Marcus is a good starting point.

Thriller Miller on the rebound... 3 April 2008
By catboyzee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Marcus had to have known that 'Silver Rain' was a subpar record, 'cause he's come back strong with this self-titled disc. He seems to be using the same concept he used for M2. Let me be the first to say, this formula is working quite well thank you. Marcus has always had one of the more identifiable and unique voices among slap-style bassists, hence his popularity among bass players and artists like Luther Vandross and Miles Davis.

While Marcus has always been great bassist, to me this record sheds more light on his somewhat underrated abilities as a multi-instrumentalist and producer. With this record he goes deeper into a melodic neo-soul idiom while managing to keep his bass playing in the leading-but-disciplined role. Quite a feat to accomplish in this era of bland, play-it-safe smooth jazzers and over-the-top progressive power-noodlers. Marcus' bullwhip slapping propels this record without overpowering it.

I do like the fresh treatment he gives to cover tunes like Free, When I Fall in Love, What is Hip?, and especially the oft-covered Stevie Wonder classic Higher Ground(this tune has that old-school R&B shuffle that you can't help but bop your head to). I had to deduct a star though, because Marcus included a cover of 'Lost Without You'. My significant other loves Robin Thicke and I don't. Hater in the house...lol! And is it me, or does it seem that Marcus is poking a little fun at that slap-and-pluck speed demon Victor Wooten on 'Jean Pierre'?

Marcus' session musicians perform wonderfully also, especially newcomer harmonica player Gregoire Maret. Marcus obviously learned his lessons from Miles Davis on choosing sidemen well. And why it took Marcus so long to reunite with his old boss David Sanborn is beyond me, but I'm glad they finally did. Let's hope its not the last time. With this disc Marcus should at least merit a nomination from the Grammies, this record is that good.

More Marcus... 30 May 2009
By Olon F. Dotson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have been following the work of Marcus Miller since he first came on the scene in the late 1970s, throughout the 1980s, and 1990s. I continue to anxiously anticipate his new material into the 21st Century. As in the past, on "MARCUS" he continues to explore new techniques and rifts which are exhibited through his superb bass playing on his new compositions as well as his reinterpretation of old funk/soul standards. At the same time however, he maintains the foundation of his work through the mastery of his 1977 Fender Jazz Bass. Keep it coming Marcus!!!

Zzzzz...Marcus has officially put me to sleep. 27 April 2008
By 20to20K - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Obviously I'm going to be in the minority here but it's my opinion and I'm gonna express it.

Marcus Miller is one of my favorite musicians of all-time. That perhaps explains why I'm so hard on him. My expectations of him is so high that when he puts out this unrelentless stream of cookie-cutter funk jams CD's I just wince in discomfort.

Hard to believe that this guy was the architect behind the best works of Sanborn, Luther, Cheryl Lynn, Joe Sample and the last decent music made by Aretha and Miles.

His first solo CD, The Sun Don't Lie was outstanding, the next two (Tales
and M-squared) were flawed, but good overall. His last two, Silver Rain and this snooze fest has him falling off the table completely. Even with his so-so CD's...his playing was always engaging. Now I'm even starting to find his bass playing boring and repetitive.

Track 4 is nice and the take on "What is Hip" is excellent (however that's more because of Sanborns playing than Marcus') but overall this CD is completely forgettable. Same stuff can be heard on his previous disks. In fact I have to listen really hard to tell the difference.

Sorry Marcus. You my homey from Queens and all...but I'm just not feelin' your music lately.

Marcus-Check the Technique! 18 May 2008
By Dwayne L. Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Marcus has thumped and plucked out another impressive album. I am a big M.M. fan and he seems to get better with each album, and the technique on some of the tracks is simply incredible, he is so fast, check out "What Is Hip?". David Sanborn sounds good too. Put on a good pair of headphones, sit back, and enjoy!...dlm
