Dominic Miller: Absinthe

Read "Absinthe" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Guitarist Dominic Miller''s 2017 ECM debut Silent Light was a low key affair that focused on his solo classical guitar (plus a bit of light percussion). The sequel features a full quintet with a rhythm section. A bigger sound, but with a similar impressionistic flavor. Miller's liner notes make that visual art reference explicit: as a ...

Dominic Miller: Silent Light

Read "Silent Light" reviewed by Luca Muchetti

Dominic Miller con Silent Light firma il suo album al tempo stesso più ambizioso, delicato e riuscito. Ci sono tanti motivi che rendono queste undici composizioni, se non il migliore, uno dei più bei capitoli della carriera del chitarrista argentino, noto al grande pubblico soprattutto per la lunga militanza, sia in studio che sul palco, al ...

Dominic Miller: Silent Light

Read "Silent Light" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Classical guitarist Dominic Miller makes his ECM debut with a largely solo program. It's a gentle, lyrical affair, reflecting his experience living in Argentina, the United States, England, and France, as well as decades of international touring as a working musician. The Brazilian influence is especially strong in pieces like opener “What You Didn't Say" and ...

VIDEO

Water (from the album Silent Light)

Featuring the music of Dominic Miller
Duration: 4:24

Born in Argentina to an American father and Irish mother, guitarist Dominic Miller was raised in the U.S. from age 10 and then educated there and in England. Now he lives in France, though he has toured the globe for the past three decades. Aptly, Silent Light – Miller’s ECM debut, featuring him solo and with percussion accompaniment – has a very international feel, with the Latin influence strong in such pieces as “Baden” (dedicated to Brazilian guitarist-composer Baden Powell). “Le Pont” has an early 20th-century Parisian air, while “Valium” evokes Celtic tunes in the vein of Bert Jansch and “Fields of Gold” is a hushed instrumental take on one of Sting’s best-known ballads. Miller has long been known as Sting’s right-hand man on guitar – and co-writer of the worldwide hit “Shape of My Heart,” among others. Miller has also worked with the likes of Paul Simon, The Chieftains and Plácido Domingo. The guitarist’s playing has prompted praise from Simon, who points out, in a liner note to the album, that Miller “has a beautiful touch, with a fragrance of jazz and English folk.”

Dominic Miller: Silent Light

Read "Silent Light" reviewed by Geno Thackara

Dominic Miller is a guitarist you've undoubtedly heard somewhere or other, whether you've knowingly heard of him or not. A life circling the globe (from Argentina to England and currently France) has let him absorb folk, Baroque and Latin American sensibilities, among other things, which leads to collaborations with similarly eclectic names. His widest exposure has ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
