“ Discover a Jazz treasure. Miles Donahue is one of the best kept jazz secrets…” says Grammy Award winning Boston Globe Jazz critic Bob Blumenthal.
In 1992, Miles first major recording as a jazz leader was released on Timeless Records. “Double Dribble” featured Kenny Werner, Bruce Gertz and George Schuller. A review of this recording in Saxophone Journal reads:“Very few musicians today have the diversity and hidden talents Miles Donahue possesses. His phrasing of tenor and trumpet, the harmonic sophisti- cation he plays with and his ability to swing with incredible beauty, all lead to a master musi- cian.This is one of the best CDs I’ve heard in years.”
In a Jazziz magazine review of “The Good Listener” on Ram records the reviewer says, “like Benny Carter and Ira Sullivan, Miles Donahue is a rare example of someone whose strong personality asserts itself without hesitation whether he’s picking up trumpet or saxophone.”
“Simple Pleasures,” released in 1998 (also on Ram Records), was Miles’ next recording. It featured Kenny Werner, George Garzone, Mick Goodrick, Billy Hart and Bruce Gertz.
In an interview in Saxophone Journal, Jerry Bergonzi said:“Miles Donahue is one of my favorite cats because he plays so unique and fresh. Plus the thing of trumpet and sax. To this day I’ve never heard anyone play trumpet and tenor so balanced.”
