Product Description

Review

"The Contemporary Jazz format needs this cd. Denny's best work to date, a must have. A must listen start to finish. May only be 3 months into the new year, look out cause this could be the number 1 cd of 2008." --Chris Nochowicz Future of Jazz Radio Show

Dreams Like This 20th Century Guitar reviewed by Robert Silverstein SONIC CANVAS RECORDS - A renowned musician in the world of mainstream and smooth jazz, guitarist Denny Jiosa can always be counted on to come up with a winning strategy. On his 2008 CD, Dreams Like This, Jiosa teams with a bunch of top players and the results make for a solid set of breezy guitar instrumentals. The follow up to his 2002 CD, Body2Body, 2008 s Dreams Like This features a fresh round of Jiosa originals with a definite highlight being a cover of the Bobby Hebb 1966 song classic, Sunny which features Hebb on cameo vocals. Commenting on working with an icon of 60s pop, Jiosa adds, Bobby Hebb, the original artist and composer of Sunny came to my studio to listen to my version of his song. He gave me an overwhelming approval and even agreed to sing on the track! On Dreams Like This, Jiosa keeps his sunny side up on an album of albums that should have across the board appeal among guitar enthusiasts. --20th Century Guitar / Robert Silverstein

Denny Jiosa is a player of immense chops and fire, and while jazz dominates this album, Jiosa is also at home with R&B and pop,and cuts like "Forward Motion" give him a chance to show off his inventive soloing and strong use of melody. Almost every cut here sticks. Jiosa is a master of the light funk that dominates smooth jazz, but on "I Am Roxane," his fiery playing overrides any mixed emotions about the genre. His soloing mixes single lines with octaves, and there's even fuzzed-out rock. Effortlessly, both from a compositional and playing standpoint, he then glides right back into octaves to wrap it up. He shows off a lovely ballad touch on several tunes, including "Wounded Warriors," with it's great melody and fine playing. Same goes for his chordal work on the lovely "The Glass Half Full." The CD has a bonus cut that pays homage to Wes Montgomery, from whom Jiosa takes a lot of cues; "East of Montgomery" is an old-school jazz piece and the connection is obvious. Like the latter-day Wes, he plays with fire, grace, and blazing technique.-- John Heidt --VINTAGE GUITAR MAGAZINE/John Heidt

The melody is gorgeous and I can't stop thinking about all the young men and women who have sacrificed so much for us.

I purchased this whole CD about a week ago. I can't get it out of my player! For those of you who may not be aware, Denny Jiosa is arguably one of the top contemporary jazz guitarists in the world. It is mind numbing to experience the depth of the artistry displayed on this project. Straight-ahead Jazz, Latin (think Santana's heat), Smooth Jazz (not the lame stuff on most smooth jazz stations) and cinematic landscapes all unfold effortlessly giving us a glimpse into Denny's prodigious musical vocabulary. However, another thing I like is that he says more in 5 well-placed heartfelt notes than using 57 just because he could. Denny has an uncanny way of expressing deep emotions through the twists, turns and nuances of his seductive melodies. That's one of the main things I like about the CD is that I actually `feel' something when I'm listening to it!
"Chill Pill" opens the CD with a funky contemporary groove with some surprises. How did he ever get Bobby Hebb (the original artist for "Sunny") to appear on the ultra-cool remake of that track with him? "I am Roxanne" is all about the sensual side of life (check out the smokin' video of this song as the CD is enhanced). "East of Montgomery" is Denny's homage to `Wes' and is just plain fun with some scorching licks thrown in. "Wounded Warrior" tears me up every time I hear it. The melody is gorgeous and I can't stop thinking about all the young men and women who have sacrificed so much for us. Sonically the CD's high production values make it audiofile all the way. I own all of Denny's discs and it has been fun to watch the growth from CD to CD. Each is amazing in its own way. Each has its own direction. With each new disc it is refreshing to see an artist stretch his chops to express his heart to us in new ways. So. . .do I like this CD? No - I LOVE it! Buy the full CD for its extras with a video interview and live footage. Buy this CD now! You won't be sorry!

THIS IS FROM THE LATEST EDITION OF VINTAGE GUITAR MAGAZINE, WITH THE REVEIW WRITTEN BY JOHN HEIDT.

From the first note played on "Chillpill", the first track on Denny Jiosa's new cd "Dreams LIke This", you will know that Denny has set a new bar in contemporary jazz. "Chillpill" is high energy and draws the listener in from the first bar - you will find you will be inclined to move some part of your body while listening. The album is a compilation of amazing songs that never leave you wanting to fast forward to the next track; each has its own personality and you feel like you are listening to a great line up of songs in a live performance venue.

My personal favorite is "Wounded Warrior". For those of you battling demons or heartache, this song could possibly heal you as it will touch your soul. It will take you to a better place.
Of course mention has to be made of the extraordinary arrangement of "Sunny", and the scat by Bobby Hebb - this simply makes the album worth purchasing by itself alone. What a treasure. "I Am Roxane" will leave you breathless and the video is amazing. But perhaps one of the most memorable and unexpected moments on the cd for me is to hear Denny on the vocals in "Just the Thought of You". What a voice and what an emotion-filled song. Kinda wish it didn't end!

This is a first rate album with one of the most amazing and talented jazz guitarist and writer out there today, perhaps THE most talented jazz guitarist - I love every minute of it! Hope to see Denny on the Grammys with this one!

Denny Jiosa is magic when he plays. This CD is a wonderful sampling of this artist's talent and expertise with his jazz guitar. I can listen to this CD over and over and pick up nuances in his music that I may not have heard on a previous play. Denny is a genius with his instrument.

I would recommend this to anyone and feel confident they would love his music.
