I am proud to announce the release on JUNE 1st of the 2nd CD for which I illustrated the booklet. The fourth album of Byron Miller, the Funk bassist who collaborated with George Duke and Luther Vandross ! He created the first funk bass solo that became a reference of its kind on the track “Reach For It” for George Duke in 1977! What a privilege to be a part of his new project.
