Allison Miller's Boom Tic Boom
In addition to performing with singer-songwriters like Ani DiFranco and Natalie Merchant and touring with Brandi Carlile for the past few years, the in-demand and innovative drummer Allison Miller, who's been wielding sticks since she was ten years old, has also played with such jazz heavies as Marty Ehrlich and Dr. Lonnie Smith. With her group Boom Tic Boom, the New York-based Miller is a damn fine improviser who exhibits a far-reaching range, from light-handed cymbal work to deep grooves. For these two shows at Dazzle, she'll be joined by forward-thinking pianist Myra Melford, who appears on the group's outstanding 2010 self-titled release, bassist Chris Lightcap, and local trumpeter extraordinaire Ron Miles.
