Doug Miller

After mastering his craft over the past 30 years, Doug Miller recently joined the music faculty of Old Dominion University in 2019. He brings with him an impressive list of accomplishments. After studying privately with the legendary jazz saxophonist Joe Henderson, he completed studies at the Berklee College of Music and the New England Conservatory of Music, both in Boston, MA.

Mr. Miller has performed with a long list of world renown jazz artists, some of which include George Russell, Art Blakey, Frank Foster, Wynton Marsalis, Branford Marsalis, McCoy Tyner, Machito, Tito Puente, Jack McDuff, Quincy Jones, Joe Williams, Ella Fitzgerald, Tony Bennett, Diane Schuur and Nancy Wilson. He was a member of The Lionel Hampton from 1982-1988 where he served as tenor saxophonist as well as musical director. He has performed at virtually every major jazz festival in the world and at legendary venues such as Carnegie Hall, the Hollywood Bowl, and the famed Village Vanguard in NYC. Doug is listed in the Leonard Feather/Ira Gitler 'Biographical Encyclopedia of Jazz'.

He has recorded with many artists including George Russell, Lionel Hampton, The Count Basie Orchestra, George Benson, Lena Horne, Tony Bennett, Joe Williams, Jon Hendricks, Manhattan Transfer, Stevie Wonder and the New York Voices (on which his arranging talents contributed to this recording receiving a Grammy Award.)

Mr. Miller has been a clinician for over 25 years at such venues as the now defunct International Association of Jazz Educators conventions, Kansas State University, Florida State University, University of North Texas and La Escuela Moderna de Musica in Santiago, Chile.

He is currently a tenor saxophonist, arranger, and also serves as Road Manager for the World Famous Count Basie Orchestra. In addition, he also continues to conduct clinics and to perform as a guest artist internationally.
