Pieces Of a Dream – Night Vision

October 24, 2009

Pieces of a Dream
Comprised of bassist Cedric Napoleon, drummer Curtis Harmon, and keyboardist James Lloyd, Pieces of a Dream were founded in 1975 in Philadelphia when the principal members were all teenagers. Originally somewhat jazz-oriented, Pieces of a Dream have mostly emphasized R&B, although they usually include a few jazz numbers in their performances. Grover Washington, Jr. produced their first three albums (all for Elektra during 1981-1983); they have since recorded for Manhattan and Blue Note. Saxophonist Ron Kerber became a member in the 1990s, preceding the four varied releases that appeared throughout the decade. A collection appeared at the turn of the century, but the band proved to still be going strong with 2001’s Acquainted with the Night and 2002’s Love’s Silhouette. No Assembly Required was released in 2004 on Cleveland’s Heads Up label, followed by 2006’s Pillow Talk, also on Heads Up.
