Jazz artist Miller has scored lots of films for 30 years now. Doesn't look like much of his film music is released, one of the few is Siesta from 1987, plus some bits and pieces here and there.

Any opinions on his stuff?

Anything worth checking out? I have seen Boomerang and The Great White Hype, but didn't really notice the scores.

I only have SIESTA, but I like it very much. Of course, as Miles Davis is featured soloist and "official" co-composer on one track, it's reminiscent of his earlier, brooding work for Gil Evans. "Sketches of Spain" is the biggest influence (appropriately). Some of the music which appeared in both "Sketches of Spain" and SIESTA also turned up in slightly adapted form by Jerry Fielding in THE GAUNTLET.

I should check out his other work, but I'd probably be more drawn towards his jazz recordings. I don't know how they have evaded me for so long.

I like his production and songwriting work for David Sanborn, particularly the 1988 album Close Up.
