Sammy Miller and the Congregation are pulling people out of their solitary lives and putting them in the moment with a bracing dose of joyful jazz performed with infectious theatricality. The New York City-based, familial collective has captured its frenetic energy and unflinchingly optimistic songwriting on its debut album, Leaving Egypt.

A native of Los Angeles, Juilliard trained-Grammy® nominated drummer Sammy Miller has been hailed as "the perfect player scholar” (The Wall Street Journal).

From Lincoln Center to The White House, The Newport Jazz Festival to Umbria Jazz, with wide-ranging special guests Wynton Marsalis to Bill Irwin (Macthur Genius Winner 1984), The Congregation has brought an new perspective of jazz to a new generation of listeners.
