||More Of The Same?|
Silver Rain songs The master has done it again! First of all, we must appreciate that Marcus Miller may be the most talented and productive of all living electric bassists. There are riffs that only he can play and he does them often. Miller is so profound as an arranger and producer, at one point he was David Sanborn's, Luther Vandross', and Miles Davis' music director at virtually the same time! Since '95, all of his studio album's have seemed to be 'more of the same', topping off with '03's 'M2'. The truth is that Miller has reached the height of his craft. When you're at the top, you don't need to keep trying to find ways to improve, you just need to stay productive- "Talent is what talent does!" On 'Silver Rain', Miller chooses to showcase his talents in several covers. Take Edgar Winter's classic, 'Frankenstein. The original is so perfect, who would attempt a cover? What Miller does here is contribute a series of original vamps to augment the theme. During the solos, you forget it's 'Frankenstein'. Beethoven's 'Moonlight Sonata' gets the Miles Davis, 'New Blues' treatment. This song alone is worth the price of admission. Miller does some beautiful bass clarinet work on Ellington's classic, 'Sophisticated Lady', and on the Luther Vandross classic, 'If Only For One Night'. Miller is also probably the greatest living bass clarinet player too. Though some may think he's a bit of a show-off and even a bit commercial, I just appreciate a virtuoso at the top of his game. "Play on playa!"

||TAKE A BREAK|
FIRST OFF LET ME SAY THAT I AM A HUGE MM FAN. I HAVE ALL BUT THE LIVE CD AND THE OZELL TAPES CD. THIS IS A GOOD RECORD BUT I HAVE TO AGREE IT ISN'T AS EXCITING AS HIS LAST 3 STUDIO RECORDS (THE SUN DON'T LIE, TALES & MM2). I LIKE GIRLS & BOYS, FRANKENSTEIN AND 2 OR 3 OTHERS. BUT IT DOES SEEM LIKE THE WELL IS RUNNING DRY ON CREATIVITY. NO DOUBT YOU ARE ONE OF THE PREMIRE BASS PLAYERS ON THE SCENE TODAY. HOWEVER, MAYBE IT'S TIME YOU STEP BACK AND JUST DO SOME SESSION WORK FOR A WHILE.

||He did it AGAIN|
This is one of the best "Bass" records ever! And if you're a Jazz or Marcus Miller fan this will be one of your favorites. I think its the best one since his first. He does what he does best in so many different ways.... WOW. A Must have for any "serious" bassist. -Jason Mark,.

||Jazz for a new generation|
This is THE jazz album for turning on new listeners. Amazing tones and recording quality, Millers is probably the greatest jazz musician alive today and making music that is way more accesible than this contemporaries.
