Marcus Miller Band: “Jean Pierre” Live

Today is Marcus Miller’s birthday, and we’re celebrating by listening to all kinds of music with Marcus (of which, there’s a lot to choose from).

Here’s an epic video of Marcus with his band performing Miles Davis’ “Jean Pierre” at North Sea Jazz in 2011.

It starts out with such a fantastic groove and starts building, with quotes from Prince’s “When Doves Cry” and eventually leading to a solo battle between Marcus and saxophonist Alex Han.

And man, that tone!

  1. That made me laugh out loud with joy.

  2. Marcus is the man as usual! It appears that he really studied Miles’ band leadership style. Bravo!
