02 July – Back to the Origins
Returning back to the sources of jazz with his new inspiring project “Afrodeezia”, Marcus Miller promises an upbeat journey from Africa to the United States on the Istanbul Jazz Festival stage. Primarily a bassist and producer, Marcus Miller has worked on hundreds of sessions crossing jazz, R&B, and rock, and has released several solo recordings since the late 1970s. Miller worked with trumpeter Miles Davis, pianist Herbie Hancock, and saxophonist David Sanborn, as well as maintaining a successful solo career. The concert is at 9 p.m. at Cemil Topuzlu Open Air Theatre.
