Editorial Reviews

In the gentle lull of sleep, we re often enraptured in a vivid sequence of thoughts, images, and sensations. A lifelike realm where radiant colors, sounds, and illusions intersect, creating the most vibrant experience. This spring, prolific R&B/Jazz musician Brian Culbertson invites you to close your eyes, open your ears, and fall deep into a lush world of musical fantasy with his breathtaking thirteenth album Dreams. With the help of lauded guest vocalists Noel Gourdin, Vivian Green, and Stokley Williams of Mint Condition, Dreams masterfully melds jazz sensibility with an R&B flair in a wondrous mélange of enchanting grooves.

Last summer, I just started having these really vivid dreams, Culbertson says. I started waking up inspired to get into the studio and write songs. Songs that made me feel like those dreams. It s really strange for me, because I ve never written songs about being inspired by dreams. That s why this record is quite different.

Having worked with an array of stellar R&B artists such as Faith Evans, Ledisi, Brian McKnight, Kenny Lattimore, and Avant on his past albums, Brian forges full steam ahead in that tradition on Dreams. Brian brought together a group of "who's who" in music including: R&B producer and longtime collaborator and arranger Rex Rideout (Angie Stone, Ledisi, Luther Vandross, Lalah Hathaway, Will Downing, Kem); four of R&B s top session players to help round out the sound - bassist Alex Al (Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Quincy Jones); and guitarists Michael Thompson (Babyface, Toni Braxton), Rob Bacon (Beyonce, Raphael Saadiq), and John Jubu Smith (Frankie Beverly & Maze, Whitney Houston).

The result is a stunning collection of 10 mesmerizing tunes, including the extraordinary lead Urban Adult Contemporary single Still Here - featuring the soulful rapture of Vivian Green. Co-written by Green, the song tells the passionate tale of how taking a risk on love can have a happy ending. Sometimes your past experiences and all your friends are telling you to stay away from someone because it seems too good to be true, explains Brian. But there s something different about this person. Almost like you ve met before in a dream. Because of this, you have a strong feeling that it will work out so you go with it and amazingly, they turn out to be the one. Still Here will also be the first music video from Dreams.

I am a fan of Brian C. I adore and love his music. I had the opportunity seeing him live and his music is majestic! I love this new CD which I highly anticipated. I have no more words to describe his artistry. His one of the best and this album is another "Best of Brian"...simply AMAZING! Live from the Inside (CD/DVD)

Bought the CD to assure the "best" quality music. Nice music, very mellow hence the title "Dreams". For those who like classic Brian (like myself) you will enjoy this effort. HOWEVER, I originally thought that the CD version of "Lights Off" was cut short as compared to the MP3 version. Then Jazz Fan advised me that, no, actually the MP3 download of Lights Off has 7 min of dead air. The song is 7:09 min on the CD, but listed at 14:13 min as a MP3 download. See comments for Jazz Fan's comment. Come on ...this is stupid. Amazon, what the heck??

A very different style for Brian yet hauntingly beautiful nonetheless. He creates a mood, an ambiance of seduction and I love his music no matter where he takes his listener.

I love Brian Culbertson! My husband and I have seen him quite a few times and never get tired of seeing or hearing him. A very talented young man. So, if you like Brian's music...you're going to love the Dreams CD too. I do! :-)

I've turned the radio off for a long time. I turn it on today and hear You're My Music, these beautiful voices serenading me, angelic expressions of Love...it touched every part of my soul...transcendant. Beautiful.

He is amazing. I will be ordering up more of his music, for sure. I was able to sit back (with a nice glass of wine), and thoroughly enjoy this whole CD. Can't wait to hear the rest of what he has to offer.
