"Dream Come True" marks a vision I've had for sometime. I hope that you enjoy the music as much as we enjoyed recording it. the compositions, which were for the most part written during a stay in Europe, all have their stories.
"Dancer" is about the gracefulness of a dancer. The melody of "Trying" is meant to illustrate end success in spite of temporary setbacks. "Spirit" Cry" says just what it is, the violent yet sonorous cry of our spirit. "Curtis" was written for my friend Curtis Fuller. The first half of the melody was taken from Curtis' statement on the bridge of " Invitation". "For You" was written for a close friend and "Dream Come True" sums of the reality of this dream!.
I would like to thank Art Blakely, Slide Hampton, and Woody Shaw for their musical support, and hope that this album marks the beginning of my dedication to the music.
