Silver Rain is Marcus Miller's sixth CD takes its name from the Langston Hughes poem, "In Time of Silver Rain." This outstanding CD deserves more than a mere listen, as sexy background mood music or mellow music it’s just dynamite. I very much enjoyed listening to it (over and over and over).

Ciao’ for now, peace.
