Program notes

Welcome to the first installment of this four parts documentary by Patrick Savey, on board the 2007 North Sea Jazz Festival boat! We set sail in the company of bass great and jazz fusion legend Marcus Miller with a superb concert, during this journey across the North Sea. Between two energetic pieces, Marcus Miller sits down for fascinating interviews and evokes his mentors: Herbie Hancock, McCoy Tyner, and many more...

With spicy anecdotes about these giants' instrumental techniques, their personal history and impact on the jazz world as a whole, Miller allows us to grasp the essence of these musicians. His insights into the philosphical dimension of their artistic journey is enriched by excerpts from concerts by the great Marcus Miller Band in an adventure that will captivate the viewer from beginning to end, and it is only the first episode!
