Drummer Curtis Harmon, keyboardist James Lloyd and former bassist Cedric Napoleon founded crossover jazz group Pieces of a Dream in Philadelphia. They were teenagers at the time of their 1976 formation. The group based their name on “Pieces of Dreams,” a cover tune by Stanley Turrentine that the group performed.  From 1981 to 1984, Pieces of a Dream built their reputation with three albums that would come to define the musical essence of the smooth jazz radio explosion: Pieces Of A Dream (1981), We Are One (1982) and Imagine This (1983).  Those seminal records yielded some of their earliest hits, including “Warm Weather,” “Mount Airy Groove” and “Fo Fi Fo,” which peaked at #13 on the US Soul chart.”  

The 2nd Annual Jazz Spectacular at Michigan Lottery Amphitheatre at Freedom Hill is part of the Fifth Third Bank Concert Series.
