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??

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! :-)

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.

O' my... I have been a Brian Culbertson fan for the longest. I remember listing to him when my father would paint or work on fixing things. When I heard just one song from this album it had me at "Add To Cart" lol. I brought the whole album. And truly I wasn't disappointed, the buy was well wroth the money. This album rocks, I sat back listening to it drinking some wine and doing some art. THIS IS A MUST HAVE FOR ANY JAZZ LOVER!!!!!!

I've got a problem. There is a CD stuck in my car CD player--and I can't remove it. Actually the name of the CD is "Dreams" by Brian Culbertson. I like this CD so much that I don't want to remove it. I've got about 10 of my favorite CD'S stashed in the armrest compartment,but I'd rather listen to "Dreams" because it let's me chill out,get mellow and the miles just float by as I unwind behind the steering wheel on a long trip,a short trip,any kind of a trip. The music is so relaxing and beautiful. Sometimes,I'll give the driver of the car next to me a quick whiff of "Dreams"--if he or she has their window down at a stoplight. I turn up the volume a little and inevitably the driver in the adjacent car will start tapping his or her fingers on the steering wheel. It's happened a number of times and I bet the driver is disappointed when the light turns green. I like smooth jazz and this is my favorite smooth jazz CD. if you like smooth jazz,you will love this CD.

I heard this for the first time this summer in South Carolina. Then got lucky and saw him in concert in Atlanta. I don't know why I am just getting on this bandwagon. He is very talented and has a charming stage presence.
