Jazz musician and two time Grammy Award winner Marcus Miller today released his new album, Renaissance. In the above video, Marcus speaks on the background of the album and shares his recording process with us.

About inspiration of the album’s title and theme, Marcus says:

“The last of our heroes are checking out and we are truly entering a new era. Politically, things have polarized and are coming to a head. Musically, we’ve got all these cool ways to play and share music – MP3 files, internet radio and satellite radio – but the music is not as revolutionary as the media. It’s time for a rebirth.”

Enter our contest to win Renaissance.
