Japan has always held special place in Marcus Miller’s heart. His performances there have always been nothing short of pan-cultural musical love-ins, and he has often released projects there first with exclusive material. The epic misfortune that has taken place there was a crushing personal blow. Marcus swiftly found support for the cause within his top-notch network of eclectic and excellent musical friends.
“My heart goes out to the people of Japan who are suffering through the effects of the earthquake and tsunami,” Miller states. “So many musicians like me have enjoyed the love and support of Japanese music lovers over the years. We’re putting this show together to try to return some of that love and support in their time of need.”
