Universe Soul Records proudly announces the upcoming release by Marcus L. Miller. This CD is all about the drum. In fact there are 3 CDs b/c there was so much music it wouldn't fit on just one. This Cd has been in the works for many years, but is now ready for release.
The CD's feature Marcus playing an array of drums and percussion instruments. Every sound and instrument you hear is played by MLM. Not since his first album release, It's Miller Time, has he showcased his talents on other instruments. The three titles are Sankofa, Sound Machine 2010 and beyond, & The Hammer, Brush, & Bucket suite. They are available separately or as a 3 CD collection entitled "MarcusMillerDrums". As usual, the tracks will be first released on www.marcusmillerdrums.com, but will soon be available on itunes and many other online retailers.
The Hammer, Brush, & Bucket album is material written for a drum orchestra. Sound Machine 2011 & beyond is the resultant mixture of traditional acoustic drumming with electronic synthesized drums. Sankofa is a tribute to all the drum styles I love and encompasses a range of drum styles.
Over the years, Miller had received many requests from fans asking for a drum CD. Miller says, "It's my hope that after you listen to these tracks, you'll never think of a drum in the same way." This collection includes West African, Brazilian, Afro-Cuban, Western, Middle-Eastern, and Electronic styles of drumming. Miller adds, "I've had a chance to play a lot of different, types of music and rhythms. This was my chance to put it all together and see what happens."
