It's Marcus Miller what more can I say :). This album is not the usual funky Marcus Miller as we know him, there are a lot more slower tracks than fast funky ones. I normally have a rule of thumb with albums which is if the first 3 tracks don't jump out at me I won't buy it and on this album they didn't. I bought the album just because it is Marcus Miller, he might be a bit annoyed about that but I'm only human :). I had to listen to the album at least 5 times over a period of time to really appreciate what Marcus has delivered. Now I have digested the album I can say that it's great. Marcus is pushing himself beyond the status quo of a jazz bass player to embrace music in it's totality .
this is Marcus's best album since,(the sun don't lie)outstanding playing by all involved faves for me are mr clean, slipping into darkness, cee-tee-eye, the gig at cheltenham was one of his best this cd just keeps the memories alive,superb all round, just buy it you will not be disappointed.
