Bassist Cedric Napoleon, drummer Curtis Harmon, and keyboardist James Lloyd founded crossover jazz group Bits of a Dream in Philadelphia, Pa. They were teens during their 1976 development. Though jazz-based, the group also emphasized R&B and integrated funk, quiet surprise, hip-hop, new jack port swing, and soft jazz to their recordings, which frequently presented vocalists (including Barbara Walker, Eva Cassidy, and Maysa Drip). Grover Washington, Jr. created their first three albums — Bits of a Fantasy, WE HAVE BEEN One, and Imagine This — which had been released on Elektra from 1981 through 1983. Three extra ’80s produces, including some co-produced by Lenny White colored, made an appearance on EMI-Manhattan. Saxophonist Ron Kerber became an associate within the ’90s — an addition that preceded assorted releases during that 10 years for Blue Notice. In the first 2000s, Bits of a Fantasy shifted to Cleveland’s Mind Up label, where they continued to be for ten years. Their studio work, In as soon as, made an appearance on Shanachie in 2013. In 2015, Bits of a Fantasy released their 21st studio room recording, All In.
