Chuck Miller "After playing on the trumpet the school's fight song, Our Boys Gonna Shine Tonight by ear, they put me in the high school band. It all happened so fast, I was only in the sixth grade." Of all the musicians/teachers to be associated with the instruction of youth in the Omaha community, Chuck Miller was the most influential and the most controversial. Despite his seeming less impossible task of developing the raw unused musical talents of at-risk children and developing them into singers and performers in popular bands, many of the youth taught by him have grown up into productive professional musicians. As a result of his teaching, they have performed all over the world. Few musicians in the Omaha community would seem to have been more deserving of a job well done than Chuck Miller.
This CD by Omaha-based trumpeter/educator Chuck Miller is a swinging, jazzy labor of love. Fellow trumpeter (and Wynton Marsalis Big Band alumnus) Riley Mullins is also prominently featured on this straight-ahead modern jazz CD.

This CD is Vintage Chuck Miller
This CD certainly captures the distinctive style of Chuck Miller. He has several other great players join him in the presenation but, once you know his sound, you can always tell his phrasing apart from the others. Nice work by the guy who introduced me to Jazz more than 35 yrs ago at Boy's Club of Omaha. And, to my surprise, he gives mention to the many Boys that came through that very successful program. Way to go Chuck! I only wish I had my CD with me when I saw you in Omaha while on vacation early July '07! I look forward to hear your next piece of Art. Respectfully, Calvin Howell (Bass)
