Greetings! Here we are in the midst of another Black History month celebration. The door of time revolves so quickly these days…

WHAT’S THE HAPS?
•I can be found at many libraries and museums throughout Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Orange, and Riverside counties. For a complete list please contact your local library or go to www.marcusmillerdrums.com.
•I would like to thank all of those fans who came out to support in Durham, NC last week. I hope you enjoyed those two nights; they were special. For those of you who missed the the shows featuring my band Freedom Jazz Movement and Chris Botti’s band at the Carolina Theatre, don’t despair, there will b be others

•The wait is just about over. Many of you have been patiently awaiting the release of my next CD. As of March 2007, my newest Universe Soul Records release,”Back Again”, will be available online at itunes, cdbaby, and most online music retailers. Additionally, this month if you go to www.myspace.com/freedomjazzmovement ,you can hear some of the cuts off the new album.
Thanks again for your continued support and please if you like what you hear, pass it on.


WHAT’S THE BUZZ?

This month also marks the beginning of my yearlong Artist in Residence with the CA African-American Museum in Los Angeles. Join us the first Sunday of each month for the Target Family Sundays.
This event will feature a variety of activities for the entire family. I shall conduct drum circles and hold an open forum/discussion on drumming. The Village Drum project is designed to celebrate all of the unique Drum traditions within our local community of Los Angeles.
There will be arts and crafts projects for young and old to parta
