Child's Play

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
To the extremely hip, tight yet edgy Robert Miller Group, Child's Play involves taking live improvisational excursions over basic trios and quartets in styles ranging from pop
ock to blues and straight ahead jazz. Any ensemble just as comfy around a gritty, funk driven Hendrix cover "'Fire" as it is invoking images of Miles "All Blues", Chick Corea and Charles Mingus clearly has a wild dance in mind. And yet for all the experimentation, bassist Miller and cohorts like speed demon pianist Haim Cotton are at their most provocative when stripping away the blowtorch and playing it ultracool and simple.
