Mulgrew Miller

A very talented jazz piano player; not so well known by his solo work but by his live and recording performances with Art Blakey, Stefon Harris, Kenny Garrett and Tony Williams, just to name a few.

Mulgrew Miller is an american jazz pianist born in 1955 in Greenwood, Mississippi. Miller’s first experiences with music were more orientated towards gospel, R&B and blues. He was constantly meddling with Jazz, without really knowing it and freely admits he and his band were merely “approaching Jazz”.

Miller has said to have set his mind definitely on becoming a jazz pianist after seeing Oscar Peterson on television. “It was a life changing event. I knew right then that I would be a jazz pianist”.

So here it is, The Mulgrew Miller trio… something that definitely sounds like a good class of jazz to me!

Stevie Wonder

Stevie needs no introduction or presentation, he simply rocks the groove world and his keyboard skills are unique. Not to mention that he is a great guitarist, bass player and drummer too.

Stevie Wonder was signed with Motown’s Tamla label when he was only 11, can you imagine that?

Stevie was born in Saginaw, Michigan in 1950. He is the third of six children. Owing to his being born six weeks premature, the blood vessels at the back of his eyes had not yet reached the front and their aborted growth caused the retinas to detach.

Wonder’s compositions have always been on the billboards all over the world, some of his best known singles are Superstition, Sir Duke, I Wish and I Just called to say I love you.

I really admire Stevie’s skills on the keyboard, he has such a groove and a unique way of playing chords that no one else has.

I know that Superstition is a classic, but as any other good classic, it never gets old, check out this live performance:

And another classic I love, is Master Blaster (Jammin):
