“In the hands of pianist Steve Million and trombonist Andy Baker, the men who co-­‐lead BAKERzMILLION… the classic sound of three horns plus rhythm comes newly alive, mindful of tradition but bristling with the assembled experience of the players involved.” – Neil Tesser
BakerzMillion is an all-­‐star jazz sextet in the tradition of the classic Blue Note groups of the 1960s. Featuring Victor Garcia (trumpet), Jim Gailloreto (saxophones), Tim Davis (drums) and Matt Ferguson (bass), the band was formed in 2005 to perform new, original compositions by co-­‐leaders Andy Baker (trombone) and Steve Million (piano).
Since that time, the band has been playing all over Chicagoland in concert halls, universities and clubs such as the Jazz Showcase and the Green Mill. Their first recording, “Mood Point” was released in April 2012 to widespread critical acclaim.
“…first-­‐class original tunes…wonderful sextet
arrangements, everyone’s chops are waaay up, great ideas all around and clearly everyone is having a ball.” – Randy Brecker
