6077Jazzman presents the definitive anthology of pioneering ethno-musicologist, mystical adventurer and real life jazz guru Dr Lloyd Miller. This album tells the fascinating life story of one man and his journey through Europe and the Middle East, living off nothing but his wits, talent and an open-minded attitude towards music and jazz. Master of dozens of languages and hundreds of instruments, Miller has spent fifty years immersed in the music of Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

Featuring recordings taken from incredibly rare privately pressed albums, live sessions in Europe, and previously unreleased material, A Lifetime in Oriental Jazz tells the story of his extraordinary personal journey from the West Coast to the Far East. Played on a plethora of exotic instruments from around the world, Miller’s music is a unique blend of jazz with the modal and spiritual sounds of traditional Asian and Middle Eastern music. Spiritual jazz, Eastern jazz – direct from the source!

Available on deluxe heavyweight vinyl and compact disc with digitally remastered sound, previously unreleased material, exhaustive historical liner notes and unseen archive photos.

“Lloyd Miller’s pioneering fusion of traditional Persian instruments and cool West Coast jazz is a mysterious sound clash of cultures. Fans of Mulatu & Salah Regab should all take note.” Nostalgia 77

“A brilliant musician” Gilles Peterson

“An essential anthology for any fan of jazz music and it’s global reach. Miller’s intercontinental experiments in improvisation, rhythm and melody have no peer. Some of the finest music recorded in the past fifty years.” Egon (Stones Throw & Now Again)
