Since the turn of the 90s, Dominic Miller has attained renown as one of the best session guitarists of his generation in the field of international pop, as well as through his long-term association with Sting. He has also pursued a more private solo career which has undeniably taken a new turn and dimension since the release of his album, Silent Night, in 2017. This marked the beginning of his collaboration with the prestigious label, ECM. After Absinthe, which came two years later, Miller released Vagabond which today continues to develop the insights posed by this matrix work, rolling out luring atmospheric music that is both lyrical and ultra-melodic, yet devoid of any overt virtuosity. At the head of a quartet, which can be considered as cosmopolitan as it is organic, we find Israeli drummer, Ziv Ravitz, his long-time partner Nicolas Fiszman on bass, and Swedish pianist Jacob Karlzon (a real gem, given the grace of his touch and the refinement of his harmonic palette). Here, Dominic Miller explores the narrative and dramatic potential of eight new compositions with strong cinematic power. They present themselves as an array of modest emotional scenarios with an often-melancholic allure. Taking advantage of the richness of the sound textures offered by his formation’s instrumentation, with the aim of developing impressionist arrangements that have clear, tuneful lines, with the sense of space specific to ECM productions, the guitarist uses simplistic and refined forms, pulsed with light grooves, making music with an instrumental and compositional mastery that is capable of soberly and maturely exploring the depths of emotion. © Stéphane Ollivier/Qobuz
