The Istanbul Jazz Festival will bring American
bass genius Marcus Miller to his fans in Istanbul once again, while preparing for its 25th year.
A regular guest at the Istanbul Jazz Festival, bass genius Miller, who is well-known for his impressive technique and brilliant albums, will take the stage on Oct. 21 at Zorlu PSM as part of a tour with talented young musicians.
As a multi-instrumentalist, Miller is highly proficient as a keyboardist, clarinetist, bass clarinetist and, primarily, as a world-renowned electric bassist.
He has worked with world stars such as Miles Davis, Michael Jackson, Herbie Hancock, Mariah Carey, Wayne Shorter, McCoy Tyner, Frank Sinatra, Dr. John, Aretha Franklin, Elton John, Donald Fagen, Bill Withers and many others.
In July 2013, he also had the honor of being designated a UNESCO Artist for Peace and the official spokesperson for the UNESCO Slave Route Project. This project was launched in 1994 to raise awareness about slavery and shed light on the struggles for dignity and freedom of enslaved peoples around the world.
Tickets for the Istanbul concert are available on Biletix.
