Marcus MillerWith a professional career as a bassist that dates back to his teenage years, Marcus Miller has played on more than 500 albums with close to 200 different performers. His work as a session musician in the 1980s included numerous television and radio advertisements, contributions to hit songs such as Aretha Franklin's "Jump to It" and Luther Vandross's "Never Too Much," and writing, production, and performance credits on Miles Davis's Tutu album, to name but a few of his accomplishments. Miller made his debut as a solo artist with Suddenly in 1983 and followed it with a self-titled release the next year.

From there, it would be almost a decade before he released his third solo album, The Sun Don't Lie, in 1993. Miller released two more solo albums in the 1990s before wowing critics with M2: Power and Grace in 2001. The album, a mixture of jazz, R&B, and modern rock, was his most successful to date and earned the musician a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Jazz Album in 2002. With two more albums to his credit in the new century, Miller carved out a substantial presence as a solo artist who could cross the border between jazz and popular music.
