He was part of many famous productions like Luther Vandross’ Power of Love, Michael Jackson’s HIStory and the classic Miles Davis album Tutu. Jason comments bass player Lee: “He is a superior musician who constantly makes everyone around him sound better.” The same is to say about Jason Miles.

Beside further projects like Coast to Coast – Maximum Grooves (2004), Soul Summit (2008), and recently Global Noize (with DJ Logic) he is best known for his tribute albums: Celebrating the Music of Weather Report (2000), A Love Affair: The Music of Ivan Lins (2000), To Grover with Love (2001), Miles to Miles in The Spirit of Miles Davis (2005), What’s Going On? (2006), his tribute to Marvin Gaye and this year 2 Grover With Love, his second homage to the late Grover Washington.
