Pianist and St. Louis expat Harry Miller, who grew up in University City and now lives in NYC, is coming back home this month to perform at 8:30 p.m. Saturday, November 17 at Robbie's House of Jazz.

Miller's credits include a couple of years of road work with trumpeter Maynard Ferguson's last touring group, Big Bop Nouveau, with whom the pianist played his last St. Louis gig about a decade ago. In addition to leading his own bands and doing freelance gigs in a variety of genres, Miller (pictured) also has worked with notables including Greg Osby, Ralph Moore, Jean Toussaint, Mike Stern, Jeff “Tain" Watts, Jerome Harris, Slide Hampton, Ted Curson, Paul Motian, Phoebe Snow, Michael Urbaniak, Cindy Blackman, DK Dyson, Allan Zavod, Terri Lyne Carrington, Ashford & Simpson, Quincy Jones, and Bebe Winans.

Miller also has self-released four recordings as a leader, the most recent of which, Jazz Beauty Supply, featured a supporting cast that included saxophonist Steve Slagle and singer Kate McGarry. He'll be joined for his gig at Robbie's by bassist Darrel Mixon and drummer Gary Sykes. Admission at the door is $10, $5 for students with ID.
