10. Louie Vega - Monique Bingham - Elevator (Going Up) (Louie Vega Long Album Mix)
We start this journey off with a chance encounter on an elevator resulting in a life-altering romance . A great story narrated by Monique Bingham’s vocals over a Louie Vega production.

Next up is a Soulful House gem courtesy of URBAN SOUND LAB. Featuring some spine tingling vocals by TERRANCE DOWNS, KARMA definitely sets the tone for a romantic evening.

Every day of the week is featured on Shelia Ford’s Album Here You Are .This Tune features a rhythm track by the Deepah Ones and keys by Michele Chiavarini.

7. Nick Power, Mojito, Stephanie Cooke - Let Go (Soulfuledge Remix)
Originally penned as a tribute to the late Soul Kandi DJ, DJ Spice, long time club DJ & KEWL Lounge radio impresario Nick Power and producer Mojito deliver a spell binding track with Stephanie Cooke delivering her trademark vocals to a piano infused soulful groove. Soulfuledge brings us a deep and lush remix lifting the vocal to another level and dropping some cutting edge beats for all the late night dance floors and hardcore groovers.

6. Glenn Underground, Matt Hughes SJU - Disconnected (Louie Vega Rewerk)
Glen Underground and Matt Hughes from Strictly Jazz Unit get together to bring us Disconnected. The vocals of Karen Marie Richardson will have everyone sing along.

5. Antonello Ferrari, Aldo Bergamasco, Michele Chiavarini, Samantha Johnson - Tenderness (Michele Chiavarini Remix)
Tenderness brings a lot of folks together. Antonello Ferrari, Aldo Bergamasco, Michele Chiavarini and  the vocal styling of Samantha Johnson united to ask for a little tenderness, it’s the best.

4. Monique Bingham, Black Coffee - Deep In The Bottom (of Africa)
Monique Bingham has been responsible for some of the most poignant house music of the past two decades. It's fitting then that Monique's album 'BEST OF THE LAST' showcases a collabo with the artist who's repping South African house to the world, Black Coffee.  This is Deep in the Bottom (of Africa)

3. Maritri - Angel In Disguise Libation Vocal (Ian Friday Remix)
Maritri is a California born, Brooklyn based multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and songwriter. Enjoy the beauty of her skills on the Ian Friday remix of Angel in Disguise. She will have you thinking she is talking about you.

Kings of Tomorrow makes a huge return with the KEWL Lounge’s penultimate tune of 2015 ‘Burn So Deep’, a single that calls upon the powerful yet soulful vocals of April. This is Sandy Rivera’s Deep Burn, a cut with a dubbier undertone that moulds with the emotive vocal from April, and is a tune that has a commanding presence.

Tony Momrelle's monumental album Keep Pushing was preceded with this stunning single, Pick Me Up. Pick Me Up swings upon an incredibly rich 'old-skool' soul cocktail of brass, guitars, backing melodies and Momrelle's incredibly pure lead delivery. This is the KEWL Lounge’s top tune of 2015 and the lyric will tell you why…

WBSR Radio Playlist - Pieces of A Dream (8 Feb 2014)

In 2014 we will keep our listeners updated on the tracks we add to the daily rotation on *Black Soul Rhythms Radio (WBSR-DR)*.  Songs from the following CD were added to our playlist on Saturday February 8, 2014. Let us know if there is something we should add!!



In The Moment (2013)

Pieces of a Dream 
In the Moment is the 2013 release from the veteran Jazz group Pieces of a Dream. Joined by superstar guitarist Rhon Lawrence and up and coming saxophonist Tony Watson Jr., the group has composed 10 brilliant originals that run the gamut from "in the pocket" R&B to the kind of sensuous Smooth Jazz jams that have made them legends. Lead producer and founding member James Lloyd, who has been a go to hit maker and accompanist for such artists as Mary J. Blige, BB King, Wayman Tisdale and others, is at the top of his game here with such highlights as the funky "Steppers 'D' Lite" and the romantic ballad "Misty Eyed". Additionally, co-founder Curtis Harmon's composition, the title track "In the Moment", is a joyful celebration of Pieces of a Dream's 20th album and their brilliant career.    ~~ Excerpt from Amazon Editorial Review 

James Lloyd and Curtis Harmon
James Lloyd is a true workaholic.  Being classically trained, he was first introduced to jazz at age 12. Other interests include cooking and martial arts. He is a performer, writer and producer. He has worked with the late, Wayman Tisdale, Walter Beasley, Najee, Alexander Zonjic, Nestor Torres, and Jeff Kashiwa.  You may also find James on CD's from Phyllis Hyman, Regina Belle, Loose Ends, Eddie Murphy, Ornette Coleman, and the late, great, Grover Washington Jr.

Curtis Harmon along with partner & bassist Bennie Sims, has also formed another musical group called "New Foundation". Displaying a style that borders jazzfunk and R&B, their new cd entitled "Goin Places" has its own personality that differs from the songs that Curt & Bennie have written for "Pieces". Goin Places also features the vocal artistry of vocalist Phil Perry. 





WBSR Review : 
Pieces of a Dream "In the Moment"
