In a creative climate populated by here-and-gone "success" stories and flash-in-the-pan imitators, Take 6 can rightly lay claim to having given the world of contemporary music something truly lasting and uniquely its own. Performing in an all-voice, no-instrument "a cappella" format, the six-man group - on its debut recording (1988's million-plusselling Take 6) - gave the world thick beds of head-spinning vocal arrangements and harmonic eloquence literally never heard before. And now with ten albums, millions of units sold and innumerable Grammy, Soul Train, Dove and Down Beat Magazine awards to its credit, Take 6 continues to surprise, delight and amaze at every turn with its latest release, Beautiful World.
Marcus Miller has appeared as a bassist on over 400 records including recordings by artists as diverse as Joe Sample, McCoy Tyner, Mariah Carey, Bill Withers, Elton John, Bryan Ferry, Frank Sinatra, and LL Cool J.
During 1981 and 1982, Miller went on the road with longtime personal hero Miles Davis and would end up working with him on several albums -- including Tutu and Music from Siesta -- after that. He has also produced Al Jarreau, the Crusaders, Wayne Shorter, Take 6, Chaka Khan, and Kenny Garrett among others, and Luther Vandross. Miller wrote and produced the old school hit, "Da Butt" for Spike Lee's School Daze soundtrack.
