Guitarist Mike Miller has been busy much of the past year, splitting his time touring worldwide with Boz Scaggs as well as Frank Zappa band offshoots The Grandmothers of Invention and Banned From Utopia. Miller continues to draw praise from better-known contemporaries, who often can be seen at his occasional headlining nights at L.A.'s oldest jazz club, the Baked Potato. Tonight's show features fellow heavyweights Mitchel Forman on keyboards, Jerry Watts on bass, and Tom Brechtlein on drums, all of whom also have extended road careers with major acts. Miller's original tunes are often quirky but catchy, with titles including “A Hair Less Bass” (dedicated to the completely bald Watts) and the guitar burner “Bad Dog,” which has become something of a signature for Miller's extreme ability.
