Allison Miller’s Boom Tic Boom Cover

*PLEASE NOTE: All 7PM and 9PM shows at Smoke are Dinner Shows Jason Palmer – trumpet Caroline Davis – alto saxophone Shamie Royston – piano Rashaan Carter – bass Allison Miller – drums “Miller is simply bolstering her reputation as one of our most exacting and exhilarating drummers now working in the jazz.” – WRTI Allison Miller and her acclaimed group Boom Tic Boom—with trumpeter Jason Palmer, saxophonist Caroline Davis, pianist Shamie Royston, bassist Rashaan Carter—make a highly anticipated Smoke Jazz Club debut. A masterful drummer and creative force, Miller employs her deep roots in jazz and improvisation to break down musical barriers incorporating folk, funk, Latin, and klezmer along the way. The New Yorker writes, “Miller’s craftiness as a percussionist is met by her ingenuity as a composer and group conceptualist.” Miller has also worked extensively with artists like Toshi Reagon, Ani DiFranco, Natalie Merchant, Brandi Carlile, and Erin McKeown, as well as with Myra Melford, Scott Colley, Dayna Stephens, Dr. Lonnie Smith, and Ben Allison. She also provides the rhythmic fire and heartbeat for the all-star supergroup Artemis.
