Utopian Dreams Band

UTOPIAN DREAMS is riding the latest worldwide contemporary jazz wave with their nu-groove sensibilities. http://igg.me/p/314977

This incredible crew of musical artists has been shaped by the San Francisco Bay Area and “live jazz” music scene over several decades. They credit their jazz evolution with nods to old school West Coast jazz, early 70’s Bay Area fusion and the contemporary jazz explosion. Their music is shaped by deeply orchestrated melodic chops expertly layered over the funk, hip hop, soul and Latin grooves of contemporary jazz. The ensemble has true heart for their interpretation of horn and piano centric compositions by such luminaries as Everette Harp, Gerald Albright, George Duke and Steve Cole.

Utopian Dreams has been blessed with the sax artistry of Eddie Baccus Jr., who was their featured guest artist at their most recent concert. Eddie has a resume that includes playing with such luminaries as Candy Dulfer, Rick Braun, Grover Washington Jr., George Duke, George Benson, Will Downing, Gerald Albright to name just a few…Eddie has helped Utopian Dreams to stretch and meet the challenge of creating magical music from a shared vision of the ensemble and letting their audience experience it.  You are listening to music from ensemble session recordings and “live” performances that are “raw and unpolished” that document their search for a unique sound…magic! This way the fans share in Utopian Dreams musical development over time. Utopian Dreams is currently in the studio, polishing and producing the sound that will grace their CD “From Dreams to You” in Spring 2013. Join the mailing list to keep your ear on these rising stars!
