New York, NY, September 20, 2016 – Robert Miller’s Project Grand Slam, the jazz rock fusion band led by the acclaimed bassist/composer, is excited to announce the release of their latest single and title track from their new album The Queen’s Carnival.

Project Grand Slam’s 4th and latest album, The Queen’s Carnival, is available now in digital form via CEN/RED Distribution, a division of Sony Music. This exciting and fresh take on jazz rock fusion features eleven tracks, including nine original songs by Robert and both vocal and instrumental versions of Robert’s reimagined version of the Kinks’ classic, “You Really Got Me.” Dave Davies, guitarist and co-founder of The Kinks, had this to say about PGS’s version of “You Really Got Me” – “Very unique version and I am liking it!”. The new album draws from a variety of influences across genres as diverse as Celtic folk and afro-Cuban rhythms while highlighting Miller’s unique approach to blending jazz and rock into an entirely new sound.
This album follows the successful 2015 release of their third album, “Made in New York”, which featured the hit songs “New York City Groove” and “Fire” (Robert’s highly acclaimed reimagined cover of the Jimi Hendrix classic).
