Project Grand Slam has been described as “a spectacular mix of jazz, fusion and rock that combines melody, groove and great improvisation.” (Acid Jazz Magazine).
Bassist/Leader/Composer Robert Miller formed PGS in 2007. The band released two celebrated CDs, "Play" (2008) and "Spring Dance" (2012) before Robert re-formed the group's lineup in Spring 2014 and the new band began performing.
2015 was a banner year for PGS. In the spring the band began recording several new tunes, including a vocal called “New York City Groove”. This song was written by Robert as a kind of love letter to his NYC home, with iconic images of NYC and a true NYC vibe. The track features the robust pipes of 2013 The Voice semi-finalist Kat Robichaud.
During the summer, as a follow up single, the band recorded “Fire”, Robert's re-imagined cover of the iconic Jimi Hendrix song, again with Kat Robichaud on vocals. The reviews of “Fire” have been stupendous, with words like “superb”, “brilliant”, “spectacular” and “unbelievable gem” being used. The videos for “Groove” and “Fire” have also been a great success, with over 150,000 YouTube total views.
In September PGS released their new album, “Made In New York”. The album includes “Groove”, “Fire”, five other Miller originals, plus two “live” tracks recorded at the world famous Blue Note NYC. The reviews of MINY have also been excellent, being called “fantastic”, “very hot” and “great stuff”.
Project Grand Slam has been steadily appearing at some of NYC's outstanding venues, including the Blue Note, Iridium, the Cutting Room, the Gramercy Theater (as opener for Scott Weiland and the Wildabouts) and the Groove.
