A Tribute to Ron Miller

The Regions is a new group formed by old friends from years ago who reunited during the pandemic lockdown.

After recording a few songs together, and excited with the results, the group decided to record a tribute to Ron Miller, Professor Emeritus of Jazz Studies at the University of Miami, featuring his original compositions in a new reimagined format. The recording also includes  “Miller Road”, an original composition by Jon Gilutin, written as a tribute to Ron.

The  Regions is made up of core members Steve Rucker, Jon Gilutin, Steve Watson and Jeff Carswell, along with John Lovell and David Fernandez.  Also featured are Murph Aucamp, Wendy Pedersen, Brian Potts, John Daversa and Gary Keller.

Take a listen to these exciting new arrangements and experience the musicianship, creativity, groove and expression that is… The Regions!

“This is a very special project done with much love. The tunes have been re-imagined very musically. I am very pleased with the results. Check it out.“
— Ron Miller

A Tribute To Ron Miller was mixed by Jon Gilutin and mastered by Phil Levine for Igloo Music.
