All Music Guide - Rob Theakston
Marcus Miller continues to display his multi-instrument virtuosity with M?, and while the order of the day is still smooth jazz, there's more of a soulful R&B edge than the majority of his previous work. It also features an all-star cast that includes Herbie Hancock, Branford Marsalis, Raphael Saadiq, Paul Jackson, Jr., and Lenny White among others. While it's not his most impressive work ever, fans will find plenty of chops to whet their appetite, and yet again it proves Miller to be one of the most talented smooth jazz artists on the scene.

    ¿M Squared¿ is an album where you can¿t go wrong.

    The Grammy Award winning album M^2 (M Squared) which was released in the summer of 2001 is an excellent album for jazz/r&b listeners and especially for bassists. Marcus Miller is undoubtedly one of the best, if not the best bassist today. He also plays sax and bass clarinet on his albums and live shows. Marcus Miller¿s style is a fusion of funk, hip-hop, jazz and rock. His slap-funk style is what influences and inspires many of today¿s bassists. The Marcus Miller band also features drummer Poogie Bell. Together, this rhythm section seduces listeners to groove to the rhythm. ¿M Sqaured¿ can be considered the best Marcus Miller album to date. The blend of elements of funk and jazz really attracts listeners. Marcus Miller¿s compositions have come a long way from his earlier albums. ¿Power,¿ ¿Boomerang,¿ and ¿Nikki¿s Groove¿ are a few of the excellent tracks on this album. However, undoubtedly the best song on this album is ¿Power.¿ Marcus¿ improvisation along with Poogie laying down the rhythm behind the beat show¿s the musicianship of Marcus along with the other studio musicians. ¿M Squared¿ is an album where you can¿t go wrong.
