We're very excited to announce that our new album, Trippin', will be released on June 29th! 10 new songs written by Robert - vocals and instrumentals, diverse and full of energy - plus our signature "reimagining" of an all-time iconic hit by The Who, "I Can't Explain".
Two advance reviews by highly respected music writers/reviewers have praised Trippin'. Jonathan Widran called the CD a "truly amazing album" with a "massive, bold and adventurous rock-soul-jazz fusion vibe." Keith "MuzikMan" Hannaleck gave the CD his highest 5 star rating, adding: "Trippin' has musicianship beyond reproach."
Many thanks to The MacWire for this review of our May 11th performance at The Groove:
MILLER’S BREW — Robert Miller’s Project Grand Slam previewed a bit of their new album (out June 29) called Trippin’ this past Friday night during their monthly residency at the Greenwich Village club. Opening with their brilliant “Metro Shuffle,” the band quickly showed their expertise as they instantly settled into a spectacular rhythm. Their version of The Kink’s “You Really Got Me” is a stunner and “Lament” from the new album, featuring an alluring Ziarra Washington hit an immediate high point. “Lament” is a solid-gold winner in the smooth jazz-groove that this band hits so well, so often. Tristan Clark on guitar is sensational and Mario Castro on sax immediately envelopes you. Miller himself, no slouch on bass, is terrific as well. Their track “Gorilla” is definitely one of their standout hits as the crowd in the club immediately began rocking to it. On the new album, the company has re-imagined The Who’s “I Can’t Explain,” successfully continuing Miller’s delightful habit of taking a Brit-biscuit and giving it the PGS-treatment. Uncannily good and the crowd loved it.
A new track called “March of the Diplomats,” was received very well. It could be the track from the album. A terrific show. PGS-approved for sure.
