    I saw Marcus Miller Band yesterday in a SMALL Jazz club. Man
    was it awesome. I was about 5 meters from the stage and the local was small. Marcus kicked ass , much more so than on record. His guitarist was very good too, very Zappa-influenced...drummer great too... the sax/trumpet were kinda weak though and felt malplaced somehow. Either way, it was the sweetest fusion/funk gig I have ever witnessed. Miller slapped, tapped, did his over-hand slap thing and played melodic fingerstyle - hell he even threw in some bass clarinet.

    If all you've heard by marcus miller is his recordings - go see him live, you will be amazed... if not by the music (which grooves heckalot more w/ a real drummer), by his wicked technique.

    I'm really happy now :) And to add to my joy my girlfriend is moving over to Sweden and staying here for a year!!!!

    OWNAGE!!!!!
