Bassist Marcus Miller to Release A Night in Monte-Carlo


Bassist Marcus Miller’s new live CD, <em>A Night in Monte-Carlo</em>, with the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra featuring Roy Hargrove and Raul Midon.

The repertoire for <em>A Night in Monte-Carlo</em> covers nearly a century of music, arranged and produced by Marcus – from two styles of opera to jazz, including a contemporized spiritual, Marcus’ composition "Your Amazing Grace" and a ballad featuring Roy Hargrove, "I’m Glad There Is You."

The program opens with "Blast!," a Grammy-nominated, Middle Eastern-tinged instrumental of world fusion funk that has been begging for a symphonic treatment since it was birthed on the bassist’s ninth album, Marcus. Raul Midon and Marcus also do a beautiful live version of Raul’s hit song "State of Mind."
