Twenty

Cakewalk Records (2014)
”‘Catch You Later’... with a handsome mid tempo groove, this brass-enriched charmer is a real winner!” - Smooth Jazz Therapy ”'TWENTY' is a fun-filled, retrospective romp with 16 original Robert Miller tunes, including the exciting, brassy single “Catch You Later.” So good, you'll wish there were 20 tracks on TWENTY!” ~JONATHAN WIDRAN (SmoothJazz.com)

“'Twenty' is an excellent resume of twenty years of Robert Miller's musical career. He and his brilliant musical companions have co-created twenty years in jazz history and hopefully they will go on for the next twenty years!” - Michel's Notes

“'Twenty' is morning music. What do I mean? There is evening music – calming and relaxing. Miller’s music is quite the opposite. Insert the album Twenty into your music player on the way to work and, trust me, you will arrive to your place of work in a great mood, full of energy and capable of achieving anything!” - Jazz Quad

“Project Grand Slam is a spectacular mix of jazz, fusion and rock that combines melody, groove and great improvisation!” - Acid Jazz Magazine;

“To the extremely hip, tight yet edgy Robert Miller Group, Child's Play involves taking live improvisational excursions over basic trios and quartets in styles ranging from pop/rock to blues and straight ahead jazz. Any ensemble just as comfy around a gritty, funk driven Hendrix cover ('Fire”) as it is invoking images of Miles (”All Blues”), Chick Corea and Charles Mingus clearly has a wild dance in mind. And yet for all the experimentation, bassist Miller and cohorts like speed demon pianist Haim Cotton are at their most provocative when stripping away the blowtorch and playing it ultracool and simple. As solid as Miller is, his real job is laying foundations for all the jamming. In a land where everything seems tailored for radio play, Miller's boys don't mind stretching the limits.” - Jonathan Widran, All Music Guide;

“Miller's edgy electric bass work is perfectly suited for a program of brisk, rhythmically turbulent pieces featuring superlative trumpet work from the underrated Randy Brecker. Further enhancing this eclectic, but impressive instrumental date are moody vocals by Jon Lucien on Miles Davis.. ..All Blues.. and Ada Dyer on Jimi Hendrix..s ..Fire..” - Don Heckman, Los Angeles Times;

“Robert plays the bass with ease..This is just great jazz music” - Strictly Jazz;

“Appealing mainstream jazz from the electric bassist, joined by a stellar cast of musicians. Miller is miles ahead...” - The Music Paper;

“Miller's bass invigorates jazz standards, a few originals, and a boppish take on Jimi Hendrix's ..Fire... Guests include drummer Anton Fig and trumpeter Randy Brecker...” - Bass Player Magazine;

“The Robert Miller Group has acquired rave reviews from many publications. Child's Play is over 55 minutes of high quality music. This disc is packed with progressive and soulful tracks that grab your attention until the end. The band is hard driving and reminiscent of the old masters. I highly recommend Child's Play by The Robert Miller Group.” - Bill Heinrichs, Polytechnic
