“Get What You Give” on Cafe Jazz

Very nice words from Ted Hasiuk of Cafe Jazz in Canada in a special show in which he spun Get What You Give…

Get What You Give – Duncan Millar:
It’s been several years since British keyboardist Duncan Millar last caused a stir in the world of smooth. Two previous solo releases, Dream Your Dream and Good To Go issued in ’98 and ’01 respectively, racked up high scores and now it’s great to see Duncan return to the scene with Fresh Air. The new album lives up to its title as Millar spins a in a new direction with grooves and moods often inspired by his travels. From a project that was self-produced and self-recorded, we’ve selected the cd’s final track, one that is reminiscent of Duncan’s days on the dance club circuit and one that we’ve adopted as an informal anthem for this show. Lots of ‘grit & groove’ in this tune, love the bass and the ‘frosted trumpet’, some excellent solos in the middle plus some great trade off riffs! So it’s with a twist on the title of the piece, that we now ‘give what we get’ – that being the selection Get What You Give!
