Project Grand Slam (PGS) was formed in 2007 by bassist/composer/leader Robert Miller.

PGS's debut album, Play (Cakewalk Records 2008), was produced by the legendary Frank Filipetti (Grammy winner for Record of the Year for James Taylor's “Hourglass” CD) and featured the Top 20 radio hit “The Captain Of Her Heart” with internationally renowned guest vocalist Judie Tzuke. In addition, PGS and five of Robert's tunes from Play were featured in an episode of the hit NBC-TV series, “Lipstick Jungle”, starring Brooke Shields. Play received rave reviews and was nominated for seven Grammys.

In Nov. 2011 PGS released our cover of the classic Hollies hit, “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother”. The song was dedicated by the band for the benefit of the victims of child abuse, relating to the Penn State University sexual abuse scandal.

In July 2012 PGS released our second album, Spring Dance (Cakewalk Records 2012). The album featured five of Robert's new compositions, including the title track which was also was a Top 20 jazz radio hit, and the CD received rave reviews.

In May 2014 Robert released “Twenty“, a compilation CD containing 16 tunes that he wrote and recorded over the last twenty years mainly with PGS. At the same time Robert decided to re-form Project Grand Slam with a new lineup. The band now consists of the following young, talented musicians in addition to Robert on bass:

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
