Mulgrew Miller – Live at Yoshi’s Vol. 1 (MAXJAZZ)
Music is a language and playing it with others is a conversation. If you say it right the first time you play it then you only add a level of redundancy if you keep replaying it. That is what so many young players do. Mulgrew Miller, despite a proclivity for note density, does not insult the listener by playing clichés or beating motifs to death. He tends to play within the chord changes rather than venturing outside, but he is fresh and invigorating, leaving the listener begging for even more. This is a wonderful trio. Check out his quintet, too!
