Alton Miller Songs From Bohemia
- Words: Jon Freer
- Label: Peacefrog
He doesn't have a profile as high as Detroit innovators such as Derrick May and Carl Craig, but this long player shows that Alton Miller has forged a distinct sound. "Songs From Bohemia" focuses on deeper grooves, similar to those of Moodymann and fellow maverick emotion manipulator Theo Parrish. "Something For You" is a generous offering, with troubled synths, stunning keys and appeasing strings. "No Goodbyes" tearfully refuses to let go, as spine-chilling synths, inflexible beats and slanted brass wedges combine. The trouble with this collection is that many cuts are influenced by similar ideals and utilize similar instrumentation, but with compositions as gorgeous as these, it's a fault that can be overlooked.
