What a pleasure to chat with this legend of music. Let me ask you a question: What do Miles Davis, Luther Vandross, Sting, Roberta Flack, Whitney Houston, Chaka Khan, George Benson, Michael Jackson, David Sanborn, Vanessa Williams, and hundreds of other legendary artists and musicians have in common?
Yes...they've all worked with Grammy Award-winning producer, keyboardist, composer, arranger, and synthesist Jason Miles. For 46 years, Miles has contributed his vast array of talents and deep musicality to the success of these and countless other superstars and independent artists. This man's talent, knowledge, and stories could fill a book
Actually, Jason Miles will be doing just that. The book is almost complete and is titled - The Extraordinary Journey of Jason Miles...A Musical Biography. Jason gives me little snippets of insider backstage/room things that are covered in this new book.
One, never to stand still, Jason shares exciting insights into the motivation(s) for his latest projects completed just before covid and while in lockdown, and he's fired up and ready to take his latest album - Kind of New- Black Magic out onto an International tour.
This is a man with real genuine passion and energy for all things music, life, and love. Highly recommend you go over to his website, bookmark it and follow him on his social media channels.
Let's finish off with a quote about Jason Miles from another icon of the music industry;
“Jason Miles has raised the level of excellence for the musicians who have had the good fortune of working with him, myself included. He has enriched the lives of the millions of people who have listened to the music he plays, the recordings he produces, and the countless musicians he mentors and inspires. The work he did with my friends, Miles Davis and Marcus Miller have helped to define the modern face of jazz music."
