In a response to the closure of venues and loss of income and performance opportunities in the music community, The Los Angeles Jazz Society has launched a series of live streams featuring up and coming, established and legendary artists.
I’m pleased to be hosting, along with others, and moderating post concert question and answer sessions. Performances are streamed via Zoom, also Facebook Live, and archived on the LAJS Facebook page. Los Angeles Jazz Society Presents has featured Peter Erskine, Gerald Clayton, Michael Mayo, Terry Gibbs, Carey Frank, Katie Thiroux, Justin Kauflin and many more artists. For updates on the ongoing concert schedule and information on how to receive your free Zoom link please go to The Los Angeles Jazz Society.
I am please to have been asked to perform a birthday concert featuring Josh Nelson on piano and Larry Koonse on guitar. This concert will be streamed live from the historic World Stage in Leimert Park, an important center of African America arts and culture in South Los Angeles. LAJS is pleased to have raised funds for this important community resource, and optional donations from this show will once again go to benefit the World Stage as well the Los Angeles Jazz Society. Multi Grammy nominated LAJS Board Member Sara Gazarek hosts.
Please go to “Mark Heard it First” for news and updates.

“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
