    is that a bass solo in that song or is it keyboard? it sounds like the effect bootsy uses quite alot, if someone has a clue what i'm talkin about could they tell me if it is bootsy and his bass doin the solo?

    Yup thats byron Miller. These tunes came out in the late 70's. They were all over R&B radio when I was in my very early teens. No Byron is not related to Marcus.

    The first time I saw Byron Miller was with George Duke back in the 70's, they also had a very young Sheila E in the band, and they killed!!! Duke was going for that bands vibe on his last album, and I was very happy. For other killer-Miller moments check out his work with Flora Purim or just about any other Duke produced project from the late 70's.
