    Are there any transcribes books of Marcus Miller tunes? I'm particularly looking for Riofunk, but I have nothing against checking out anything else by the Miller. Thanks in advance.

    If you need to work on your ear, shouldn't you try transcribing his work (i.e. Pen & Paper)?

    Just a thought, no malice intended.

    If you look under "Books", you`ll see a book titled Super Bassist/Marcus Miller. It contains note-for-note transcriptions of his tunes. Everything from his David Sanborn collaborations up until "The Sun Don`t Lie" album. Fully tabbed, for those who are into that kind of thing. ;) The fact that it`s published in Japan may pose a small problem.

    Good stuff. I'm going to take a look around a couple local places. If there's no luck, I'll drop you a line.

    There is a book that has a number of fusion jazz parts in it. The author's name is Joe Hubbard and I think the publisher is Hal Leonard. Rio Funk is definitely in it. It also has some of the tunes that he did with David Sanborn. I remember the transcriptions being very good.
