Synopsis

Album Description
The Other Room is a collection of contemporary jazz instrumentals by guitarist/composer Jane Miller. The compositions and arrangements are brilliantly executed by the stellar group of musicians assembled by producer/leader Miller. Engineer Peter Kontrimas and assistant producer Lauren Passarelli have combined talents resulting in a clean, bold sound, providing the perfect vehicle for this material. The selections range from jazz ensemble and improvised music, to bossa novas, to latin, to rock and folk influences. Also included is Jane Miller's debut writing for strings with a beautiful performance by the Arriaga String Quartet.
 

CD Reviews

Great Miller - Great Jazz
Charles Schwager | Sudbury, MA USA | 12/24/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have been listening to The Other Room for two months now and think it is Miller's best work to date. The melodies are wonderful and the arrangements bring out both the melody and the rhythm in a fine way. Egberto is so soft and silky and It's OK and Home from Chicago slip under the skin like a pinprick and cause the foot to tap.The final tune with the string quartet is brilliant in conception and execution. The melody is achingly beautiful and the use of the quartet works perfectly. I do believe she could write classical music if she chose to! Next CD, please expand this melody to last at least ten minutes, my CD player is angry with me for pressing the repeat button 3 times for that cut JThese songs seem to have an inevitability to them - nothing is out of place - and this compliment is one of the highest I can give, because Berstein used the term "inevitability" to describe Beethoven's music. I don't rank her with Beethoven quite yet; but her tunes do have the characteristic Beethoven quality of being absolutely right note after note."
