From his groundbreaking synth programming on Miles Davis’ 80’s masterpieces “Tutu”, “Music From Siesta” and “Amandla” to his current projects “Global Noize” and “Kind of New”, Jason Miles has consistently brought the highest level of artistry to his multi-faceted recordings (both as producer and artist) and live performances. Over the years the Grammy Award winning New York native has worked with a proverbial “who’s who” of contemporary music: Marcus Miller, David Sanborn, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan, Michael Brecker, The Crusaders, Ruben Blades, George Benson, Joe Sample, Herb Alpert, Vanessa Williams, Grover Washington Jr. and many more. Jason currently tours with 2 projects: “To Grover with Love” (celebrating the music of Grover Washington Jr.) and “Kind of New” (starring Jason Miles & Ingrid Jensen).

Kind of New” is Jason Miles’ most recent project with trumpet great Ingrid Jensen. Inspired by Miles Davis’ 1970 “Cellar Door” sessions, it offers a journey into the Future of Jazz by creating a new vibe that mixes electric/acoustic grooves with virtuistic performances and infectious melodies. The “Kind of New” album is one of the best reviewed jazz albums of 2015. The live show has been described as “stellar”.

To Grover with Love” pays tribute to the legendary sax player Grover Washington Jr. by performing his 1980 Grammy Award winning bestselling album “Winelight” in full, along with some of his greatest classics like “Inner City Blues” and “Soulful Strut” with an all-star band of the top players from NYC. In addition to conceiving, producing and arranging two very successful tribute recordings dedicated to Grover, Jason Miles – who did the synth programming on Grover’s 1987 album “Strawberry Moon” – has also produced and executive produced “Grover Live”, a 2010 issue of a live concert Grover performed in New York in 1997.
