Duncan Millar

Duncan's music has been called “a rarity: Smooth-Jazz with soul”. Duncan's no stranger to Soul music having played as a session-musician with UK soul-star Geno Washington and artists on Paul Weller's Respond label, but, as a Berklee grad raised on Oscar Peterson and Herbie Hancock, his musical soul was always really in Jazz.

Arriving back in London, his next musical foray was in a pop duo (Blue Mercedes), an unexpected move maybe, but it produced a five-week #1 U.S. Dance Hit. Later, as a producer, he had further club-hits, including, under the name Exoterix, the first-ever release on hip EMI dance label Positiva, and worked with many different acts including an embryonic Down To The Bone.

A magic reminiscent of Steely Dan comes across in the keyboardist's lithe, feather- touch work... —Jazz Times

Once the flute and that electric piano start trading moves, I'm hooked, - oh, this is lovely! —Smooth and Soul

Millar's created a rarity: a smooth jazz album with soul. - —- Corpus Christi Caller Times
