Celebrating my birthday in the Big Apple!
Matt Witek, MCM, Katie Thiroux, Justin Kauflin
What an honor it was to guest with the Katie Thiroux Trio
featuring one of my favorite rising stars on piano – Justin Kauflin,
Quincy Jones protege and the subject along with the late Clark Terry
of the beautiful documentary film “Keep On Keepin’ On,” which made
the short list for the Oscars as Best Documentary in 2015.
We performed at the recent ASMAC/Los Angeles Jazz Society
Holiday Party at Catalina Jazz. Great music, and a solid hang –
Justin is good natured, humble and of course a brilliant pianist.
And he has a great sense of humor.

“Miller’s voice—cheerful, positive—is one of the warmest and most welcoming voices in jazz.”
– Bruce Lindsay, All About Jazz
“Mark Christian Miller’s singing is a pleasure to the ear—breezy, rhythmically nimble, honest, and full of heart.”
– James Gavin (author of Is That All There Is?: The Strange Life of Peggy Lee)
“Miller brings sincere feeling, solid swing and fresh interpretations to a variety of standards and superior obscurities.”
– Scott Yanow, LA Jazz Scene
