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. Although they were jazz-oriented, 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 1990s -- 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. In 2013, they released In the Moment on Shanachie. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

I saw these guys in Buffalo after a long absence in November. James Lloyd did his thing. He put a blindfold over his head as he played the keyboard. He then worked his way around to the other side of the keyboard and never missed a beat as he played on the opposite side of the keyboard while still blindfolded. These cats did their thing and the crowd loved the entire show.

Smoothest jazz. The soul responds diligently!
I ♥ Pieces Of A Dream. more feel good music
Luv,Luv,Luv this group!!
Good to hear from such a talented and humble group of brothers
I have always had a 'thing' for James Lloyd! Pieces of a Dream has been consistent in this business. They have always shown their maturity.
so smooth, my style. Always been my favorite musicians
The piano is very reminiscent of Jeff Lorber
They knew very early in their lives what they were to do as they made this journey we call life. I appreciate the consistency of such wonderfully inspired music that soothes the soul. I count it a blessing to know such talented musicians. Peace & blessings to POD always.
Can't thank Grover enough for bring these brotha's into the light. Their music gets better and better as time goes on.

I will always remember POD as an R&B group. It is very nice to see the other side of a very talented group.
The mastery of the sounds that Bro. Grover found in PoaD would have been unfortunate had he walked away leaving you guys undiscovered . You came on the seen at the perfect time, unleasing music that will live on for ages uplifting the souls and spirits timelessly.. . THANK_YOU.
How Ironic! The WEATHER CHANNEL PRESENTS SMOOTH JAZZ?? Give me BREAK! Now they play Pop CR#$P!!!

I just love listening to Love's Silhouette during my daily devotional time, such a spirit moving melody...lov e me some Pieces music!
I had the privilege of seeing them peform live at the free Smooth Jazz Wednesdays concerts that was sponsored by CD 101.9 which is sadly no longer in New York at the World Trade Centerbefore it was destroyed 2 years later. I enjoyed their peformance and especially love Club Jazz. I would love to see them perform again in New York soon.
..am very envious of those who knew them before and now and have worked with them and were and are friends with them.Man,tha t ' s gotta be way cool.I haven't been fortunate to be close to someone like all of you have....take my hat off to all of you.
POAD has never disappointed . . . G o d s blessings continue to be on POAD
