Exodus To Jazz presents Tom Harrell's 'Colors of a Dream" featuring Esperanza Spaulding. Tom Harrell returns to Rochester with “Colors of a Dream”, a piano-less ensemble with two bassists and the addition of Jaleel Shaw on alto saxophone. Joining Ugonna Okegwo, Harrell’s bassist for 14 years, is bassist/vocalist Esperanza Spalding who contributes vocals on some of Harrell’s original tunes. Regular Band members Wayne Escoffery on tenor saxophone and Johnathan Blake on drums, complete this stellar group. Recognized as one of the most creative instrumentalists and composers, Tom Harrell is a frequent winner in Down Beat and Jazz Times magazines’ Critics and Readers Polls and Grammy nominee.
“The “Colors of a Dream” ensemble setting finds Harrell at the very top of his game and perhaps his creative apex. The apt title blends well with the incredibly rich and vibrant sound from the group as Harrell paints an introspective self portrait of harmonic bliss” – Brent Black
