Harry Miller (jazz bassist)
Miller began his career as a bassist with Manfred Mann, and came to settle in London. He was a central figure in the mixture of South-African township music and free-jazz which dynamised the scene in London at the end of the sixties and into the seventies. Miller recorded frequently with musicians such as Mike Westbrook, Chris McGregor, John Surman, Mike Cooper, Louis Moholo, Keith Tippett and Elton Dean. At the end of the 1970s he went to the Netherlands due to economic reasons where he worked with musicians of Willem Breuker's circle. Miller also appeared on the album Islands by the progressive rock band, King Crimson, in 1971 as session musician.
The record label, Ogun Records which he founded with his wife Hazel Miller was vital for documenting that period, and is still active today.
