Utopian Dreams is riding the latest worldwide contemporary jazz wave with their nu-groove sensibilities.
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 in 2012. Eddie returns for the 2013 concert season and brings his producer, Maurice Chevalier, to arrange our debut CD with Eddie on sax. 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. From Dreams to You is now on sale at CDBaby.
