The great Grover Washington, Jr. discovered, nurtured and produced Pieces Of A Dream while they were teenage phenoms still in high school. Since then they have toured the world, sold over one million albums, and scored both Smooth Jazz and R&B radio hits while garnering legions of dedicated fans. All In represents Pieces Of A Dream at their creative peak. Joined by superstar guitarist Rohn Lawrence (Will Downing, Boney James, Najee) and up and coming saxophnist Tony Watson Jr., the group has composed 10 brilliant originals that run the gamut from the ‘in the pocket’ R&B to the 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, Najee, Wayman Tisdale and others, is at the top of his game here with such highlights as the funky “In The City” and the romantic ballad “Alone With You.” And co-founder Curtis Harmon’s composition, the title track “All In,” is a joyful celebration of Pieces Of A Dream’s 21st album and their brilliant career. Superstar producers Herman Jackson (Norman Brown) and Chris “Big Dog” Davis (Will Downing, Maysa, Gerald Albright) round out the stellar production cast, making All In a truly special release.
