Few musicians today are as versatile as Marcus Miller: bassist, keyboardist, bass clarinetist, film composer, producer and more. He does jazz, rock, jazz-rock, pop, R&B, smooth jazz — anything that black musicians have invented in the last half-century. He was in Miles Davis’ last band, and the ethos of that music tends to carry over into his own. His band, including trumpet assassin Sean Jones, closes out day one on the main Fort stage.
