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. In 2015, Pieces of a Dream released their 21st studio album, All In. ~ Scott Yanow

Pieces of a Dream were a Smooth Jazz group before the phrase was coined by radio. Yet I doubt the Jazz Purists ever had a problem with their sound from the contemporary Jazz standpoint. That being said, you would be hard pressed to find anybody that would not say these guys play terrific jazz!
