JAZZ: Jazz Fusion, ROCK: Instrumental Rock
"â¦pure melody consciousness... [with] remarkable control, a breathy, violiny tone [and] bell-like consistency."
-Guitar Player Magazine
Tim Millerâs third indie effort stands out by manifesting his influences as an aural whole. 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.
From the perspective of guitar-related influences we hear the chordal inspiration of a fellow Bostonian, voicing-god Mick Goodrick. Linearity is Millerâs calling card, seamlessly melding Allan Holdsworthâs 21st Century legato technique with a non-guitar-centric, truly jazz vocabulary and phraseology, with notes percussing from the fretboard in pianistic fashion.
Another facet that takes Trio up a notch is the particular attention paid to tone and articulation on the high end. Miller devoted requisite consideration and time to sonics, and the dividends are sumptuous. An advocate of the ergonomically correct Klein axes, Miller's performance on âUntiedâ sounds as if he's playing two of them at once, electric for the atmospheric chords of the intro and acoustic for the quick sixteenth-note turn-backs found on high, doubled by the drums. Take Toriyamaâs tone is apart from the more athletic norms of the âfusionâ realm, with more of the room than the kit in the mix. His use of slackened snare, coupled with bassist Josh Davisâ booming upright sound, is especially effective on this track.
Miller employs a super-thick tone for his solo, alternating bop-legato mastery with sax-like repeated figures that belie the layout of the fretboard. Miller can lay into a rockânâroll repeating hyperspeed four-note figure akin to traditional Hendrix or Page twelfth-fret pentatonics, but in the middle of the neck, using four notes at spread intervals of the harmony-of-the moment, something more out of Mike Breckerâs vocabulary.
While the recording weighs in at the forty-minute mark, thereâs much to be said for concentration and self-editing. âSparkleâ is ninety seconds of inspired melodic riffing against Toriyamaâs percussion arsenal and will alone reward consecutive listening surpassing the total of the discâs real time. It would be an interesting musical exercise to map out here where each of Millerâs melodic phrases begins or ends, or to pick the midpoint of each. I am sure each roadmap would in turn comprise alternate songs. Similarly, the three minutes of âMG,â dedicated to mentor and Berklee fellowman Goodrick, forge a successful marriage of modern rock balladry with jazz.
âStraight Linesâ is the composition of the set, a midtempo cut smoldering with the passion and memorable melody usually reserved for ballads, especially in Millerâs opening solo salvo. The two âDensityâ compositions, using minimal themes fashioned from rhythmic chordal materials growing out of and into weaving strands of single-note improvisation, reveal substantial rewards unearthed by exploring repetition as a means of mining new melodic and improvisational territory.
Nothing should stand between this one getting heard and Millerâs justifiably meteoric ascension on the worldwide guitar-watchers org-chart.

Tim Millerâs âTrioâ CD vibrates with a fresh new sound for the electric guitar. âTrioâ is an offering of memorable melodies, passionate guitar playing and an innovative approach to guitar recording. Millerâs refined touch, personal approach to phrasing, and raw energy, united with a truly unique guitar tone, create a sound that has not yet been heard.
Miller combines pianistic clean and violin-like distorted tones in combination with a microphone placed on the guitar to achieve a true blend of electric and acoustic sounds that create his distinctive voice.
âTrioâ consists of twelve original compositions based on themes that occur throughout the entire recording that explore the many facets of Millerâs unique style. From fiery intensity to dynamic, soulful ballads, the listener will find new things to hear and experience new levels of depth in this narrative recording with each listen.
