Of A Dream Set for New Album Release May 24, 2019 on Shanachie Entertainment
(Philadelphia) - Pieces Of A Dream
has been churning out chart-topping hits for four consecutive decades. Even the iconic Count Basie declared Pieces Of A Dream
"A tough act to follow!" On May 24, 2019 Shanachie Entertainment will release "On Another Note," Pieces
Of A Dream's 24th recording release.
The City of Brotherly Love, the celebrated band has joined the ranks of some of Philadelphia's most revered music-makers including
Grover Washington, Jr., Patti LaBelle, The Roots, Jill Scott, John Coltrane and Stanley Clarke. Throughout their illustrious
career, childhood friends, pianist James Lloyd and drummer Curtis Harmon, have managed to stay true to their mission.
Pieces Of A Dream, whose name is inspired by Pittsburgh tenor titan
Stanley Turrentine's song "Pieces Of Dreams," has toured the world, sold over one million albums, and scored both
Smooth Jazz and R&B radio hits along the way.
Another Note" finds Pieces Of A Dream doing what they do best - serving up their irresistible signature fusion of Jazz,
R&B, Funk, Pop, Blues and beyond. There is something for everyone and for every mood. The CDs first single and title track
is a sweet and soulful groove showcasing the tenor of Tony Watson Jr.
Not many groups manage to stay together for 42 years and amass a catalogue of 24 recordings. The story of Pieces
Of A Dream is remarkable considering James Lloyd and Curtis Harmon were 16 and 18 respectively when they released their first
recording in 1981. Not long after that they hit the road performing in Grover Washington Jr.'s rhythm section and opening
for him as Pieces Of A Dream. "Mr. Magic" himself took Lloyd and Harmon under his wings and signed the band as the
first group with his brand new production company. Danny Harmon, Curtis' father and a Jazz musician himself, became their
manager and had the guys listening to the Modern Jazz Quartet, Ahmad Jamal and Oscar Peterson as they developed their unique
sound, blending their jazz roots with R&B, soul and funk. Pieces released three albums in quick succession, firmly establishing
its place in the world of Smooth Jazz with the CDs "Pieces of a Dream" (1981), "We Are One" (1982) and
"Imagine This" (1983). Those albums include some of their biggest early hits, including "Warm Weather,"
"Mount Airy Groove" and "Fo Fi Fo." Pieces Of A Dream recorded their Shanachie debut, "In The Moment,"
in 2013, followed by 2015's "All In" and "Just Funkin' Around" in 2017.
