Tim Miller

Guitarist Tim Miller contributes his fiery playing and distinctive sound to a variety of musical statements ranging from jazz to rock. He can currently be heard on two self-produced CDs, “Sides” and “Trio”. Miller was profiled in Guitar Player Magazine, which characterized his playing as “pure melody consciousness... [with] remarkable control, a breathy, violiny tone [and] bell-like consistency.” Miller's music combines explosive raw energy, artistically balanced with soulful melodic compositions.

Miller is a native of Michigan whose musical interests have taken him to Texas, Paris, New York and presently, Boston where his is currently an Assistant Professor of guitar at Berklee College of Music. He spent 1991-1997 in Dallas attending the prestigious University of North Texas Music School. It is here that he recorded “With the Distance”, an original instrumental mixture of rock and jazz textures. Miller spent 1997-1998 in Paris where he played extensively with drummer Aldo Romano. This led to recordings and European concerts and jazz festivals. Upon returning to the US, Miller joined the faculty of Berklee College of Music and recorded “Sides” with saxophonist George Garzone. He also played in a guitar quartet with Mick Goodrick. His recent performances in the US and abroad include performances with Randy Brecker, Mark Turner, Gary Husband among others.

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.
