Phil Miller (1949-2017) would have turned 70 next January. In a double tribute concert (separate afternoon and evening performances) on 6th January 2019 at London’s Vortex Jazz Club (near Dalston Kingsland station), his music will once more be brought to life by an extensive line-up of those associated with Phil throughout his nearly 50-year career.

In various combinations, the 20+ musicians will perform a set of Miller compositions from his early bands Delivery, Matching Mole, Hatfield and the North and National Health, and then a second set focusing on the In Cahoots repertoire, the band he led from 1982 to 2011 which often performed at the Vortex.

The two concerts (at 4pm and 8pm) will feature variations in both repertoire and line-ups, to ensure enough variety for those who choose to attend both, but rest assured that Miller’s best-known compositions, including “Calyx”, “God Song”, “Underdub” and “Nan True’s Hole”, will be fixtures of both.

The bands will feature: Roy Babbington, Fred Thelonious Baker, Paul Booth, Doug Boyle, Sarah Gail Brand, Paul Dufour, Jim Dvorak, John Etheridge, Simon Finch, Mark Fletcher, John Greaves, Carol Grimes, Marc Hadley, Mark Hewins, Jakko M Jakszyk, Peter Lemer, Alex Maguire, Didier Malherbe, Patrice Meyer, Jack Adam John Monck, Michael O’Brien, Simon Picard, Trevor Tomkins and Nick Twyman.
