Tim Miller offers a distinctive voice to the world of jazz guitar. He contributes his fiery playing and distinctive sound to a variety of musical statements and can currently be heard on three self-produced CDs, "Sides", "Trio", and "Trio Vol. 2".
Guitar Player Magazine characterized his playing as "pure melody consciousness with remarkable control, a breathy, violiny tone [and] bell-like consistency." Miller's music combines explosive raw energy, artistically balanced with soulful melodic compositions.
Miller’s career has taken him to Paris, New York and presently, Boston where he is currently an Associate Professor of guitar at Berklee College of Music. While living in Paris, he played extensively with drummer Aldo Romano. This led to recordings and European concerts and jazz festivals. Upon returning to the US, Miller joined the faculty of Berklee College of Music and recorded "Sides" with saxophonist George Garzone. He also played in a quartet with fellow guitarist Mick Goodrick. In 2005, Miller released his first solo recording "Trio" which has received critical acclaim. Recently, Miller has released his most personal recording to date, “Trio Vol. 2” and he is performing his latest music throughout the US and abroad. His recent performances include concerts and festivals with Paul Motian, Randy Brecker, Mark Turner, Terri Lyne Carrington, Gary Thomas, Gary Husband, George Duke, Chris Cheek, Keith Carlock, among others. He is currently co-writing a music harmony book with Mick Goodrick to be released in 2008 and working on new compositions for his next recording.

Minor 7th
"Tim Miller's current release, "Trio," is quite possibly one of the most groundbreaking and enthralling collections of contemporary jazz guitar music recorded in the last decade."

"In fact, Miller's work throughout should garner him well-deserved notoriety. His lines are executed with a legato virtuosity, springing off the fingerboard as if they are tapped out by mallets, not fingertips. More importantly, they are extremely non-guitarcentric and have a rhythmic sensibility and motion found at the highest echelons of the music. In other words, you simply won't hear Miller run a scale throughout, and when he plays you get a sense of movement akin to a kick-returner weaving through an entire defense on a 110 yard runback. The phrasing and melodic contour on “Time” in particular are exemplary-not many guitarists can blow in inside territory with as many novel ideas as Miller who, at 31, provides a fresh, promising new voice in jazz guitar. " --Phil DiPietro

20th Century Guitar
"Trio is [...] a 40 minute set of superbly recorded instrumental guitar jazz that stretches the parameters of the musical imagination."

"Compositionally, the freedom and openness in the music reflects the deep influence of Keith Jarrett, while sonically, the air-infused yet electric guitar sound dances with bass and drums mixed in a pastoral acoustic style. Even with headphones, the listener hears the trio of instruments entwined in the air, coupled by intense playing and musicianship." --Phil DiPietro
