Pieces of a Dream
Early Show : 7:00 PM
Late Show : 9:30 PM
Pieces of a Dream emerged out of Philadelphia’s music scene in 1976 by keyboardist James Lloyd, and drummer Curtis Harmon, but it was another jazz legend, the late Grover Washington Jr., the sax man who helped Pieces of a Dream become the internationally known stars they are today. Their reputation was cemented on three albums that would come to define the musical essence of the smooth jazz radio explosion: Pieces of a Dream, We Are One, and Imagine This. Those seminal records yielded some of their earliest hits, including ‘Warm Weather,’ ‘Mount Airy Groove’ and ‘Fo Fi Fo.’ Besides being a critically acclaimed keyboardist, James Lloyd has written, co-written, and produced for the late, Wayman Tisdale, Jeff Kashiwa, Nick Colionne, and Hiroshima. Drummer Curtis Harmon displays a style that borders jazz, funk, and R&B. He has recorded with Regina Bell, Massive Attack, and Ronnie Jordan.
