Miller was interested in eastern culture and music. He moved to Iran and mastered Persian music as well as Iranian folk music genres under the supervision of masters Dr. Daryush Safvat and Mahmoud Karimi. Dr. Miller is also known as Kurosh Ali Khan, a name he used while hosting a prime-time television show in Tehran, Iran in the 1970s.
The program was known as Kurosh Ali Khan va Dustan, or Kurosh Ali Khan and Friends, a variety show with music. His mother, Mrs. Maxine Adams Miller, was the author of Bright Blue Beads: An Amrican Family In Persia, and Dr. Miller is the author of Music and Song in Persia: The Art of Avaz published by Curzon Press London and also by University of Utah Press. Lloyd's recording Oriental Jazz, produced in the 1960s, was re-released recently as a CD and is a current popular item in Europe and the UK and features many amazing selections of jazz and oriental music blends.
