Among the world's most gifted, forward-thinking and eclectic electric bassists, Marcus Miller is a two-time Grammy-winner and the composer / producer of eight critically acclaimed and genre-defying albums.

On March 4, 2008 Concord Jazz released Marcus, Marcus Miller's 7th solo release, featuring guest appearances by Corinne Bailey Rae, Lalah Hathaway, Keb' Mo' and more, including Taraji P. Henson, the actress who lent her vocals to the Oscar winning song "It's Hard out Here for a Pimp" from the film Hustle and Flow.

The 13-track album finds Marcus serving up his own signature funk-jazz music, and sees him cover some classics including Stevie Wonder's "Higher Ground", Miles Davis' "Jean Pierre" and Tower of Power's "What is Hip?"

As a leading session musician, Miller has graced well over 500 albums, recording with musicians from Frank Sinatra and Elton John to Bill Withers and LL Cool J.

Marcus has also become the go-to composer for films and has scored over 20 movies including Boomerang and This Christmas. He is also responsible for writing the party song "Da Butt" for Spike Lee's film School Daze and has scored music for Chris Rock's hit TV show Everybody Hates Chris.
