From the Allmusic.com biography by Ed Hogan
It may come as a surprise to some that fast-as-quicksilver rhythm guitarist Kim Miller of ’70s Philly soul band Instant Funk likes smooth jazz groups like the Rippingtons, but it’s true. Then again, listen to Miller‘s songs, which are sprinkled throughout the recordings he did with Instant Funk (their gold single, “I Got My Mind Made Up,” went to number one R&B), rather as the main act or backing their mentor Bunny Sigler on some of his own solo records or his producing assignments. For instance, check out Patti Brooks‘ cover of the hyperkinetic “I Love Love Love You” or Instant Funk‘s cover ofMiller‘s dreamy ballad “What Can I Do for You” and you’ll hear Miller‘s definite knack for catchy melodies.
Like fellow Trenton native TJ Tindall, Kim Miller’s guitar lines are integral to some of the most popular songs of the disco and funk era. Working as an individual, or with his bandmates in Instant Funk, Miller. has written with for, recorded and performed with many of the biggest artists on the Philadelphia International and Salsoul labels, including Evelyn “Champagne” King, Teddy Pendergrass, and Gladys Knight and the Pips. Other artists with whom he has worked include Gabor Szabo, Loleatta Hathaway, and the O’Jays.
