Pieces of a Dream's background
The founding members of Pieces of a Dream were keyboardist James Lloyd, bassist Cedric Napoleon and drummer Curtis Harmon. Managed by Harmon's father and uncle, the trio found early success by being featured on Temple University's jazz station, WRTI-FM. Though they quickly grew to be quite popular in the Tri-State area, it wasn't until they made an appearance on the TV show City Lights that they earned their biggest break yet. Saxaphone legend Grover Washington Jr. saw the group perform and identified their potential; he signed them as the first act at his new production company. Soon, Pieces of a Dream was recording albums and earning international recognition. Between 1981 and 1984, the group recorded three albums. In the '90s the trio moved to EMI/Blue Note, where they recorded seven more EPs. Over the years, singers Tracy Hamlin and Eva Cassidy have been among the lead vocalists. Today, Pieces of a Dream consists of founding members James Lloyd and Curtis Harmon.
