The Outsidemen were a jazz power trio, featuring Ralph Humphrey on drums (yes, Ralph Humphrey on drums !!), the late Jim Lacefield on bass, and Mike Miller on guitar.

Mike Miller could /should be known to you as the guitar player in the Band From Utopia, or in the Chad Wackerman Trio.

"Band Overboard" captured the band live in concert.
Most of the pieces on this album are by Ralph Humphrey and/or Mike Miller, the exceptions being a Jan Hammer piece and a John McLaughlin composition.

This is great stuff. Beautiful compositions and all of the musicians get enough room to do their thing. I really like Mike Miller's guitar playing. It has a great tone and he plays great jazz lines and melodies.
