Pieces of a dream review

Dwelc39

This is sure to be a great album from pieces of a dream. They have always delivered on their albums and this one should be no different. The singles off this album already sound great and I'm sure this album will sell pretty well. 5 stars.

The Hottest Jazz Band in The Land!!

About Pieces of a Dream

Bassist Cedric Napoleon, drummer Curtis Harmon, and keyboardist James Lloyd founded crossover jazz group Pieces of a Dream in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They were teenagers at the time of their 1976 formation. Though jazz-based, the group also emphasized R&B and incorporated funk, quiet storm, hip-hop, new jack swing, and smooth jazz into their recordings, which often featured vocalists (including Barbara Walker, Eva Cassidy, and Maysa Leak). Grover Washington, Jr. produced their first three albums -- Pieces of a Dream, We Are One, and Imagine This -- all of which were released on Elektra from 1981 through 1983. Three additional '80s releases, including a pair co-produced by Lenny White, appeared on EMI-Manhattan. Saxophonist Ron Kerber became a member in the '90s -- an addition that preceded varied releases throughout that decade for Blue Note. In the early 2000s, Pieces of a Dream moved to Cleveland's Heads Up label, where they remained for a decade. Their studio effort, In the Moment, appeared on Shanachie in 2013. Two years later, Pieces of a Dream celebrated their 40th Anniversary with the release of All In. In 2017, they delivered their 22nd studio album, Just Funkin' Around. ~ Scott Yanow
