Product Description

Every track on “Perchance to Dream” has a unique treatment. The Irving Berlin standard, “Change Partners” starts off the album with a jazz waltz. Latin styles were also included. Jay Ashby’s arrangement of “Close Enough For Love” is a mambo and Marty Ashby’s arrangements of “Pure Imagination” and “How Am I To Know” take on a Samba and Bossa Nova feel respectively. Ballads include a contemporary adaptation of “Save Your Love For Me” and the ever powerful “Here’s To Life” that was arranged for only voice and guitar. To spice things up, the album includes a jazz rock version of “Sharing The Night With The Blues” and the swinger, “You Better Love Me.” Two previously unrecorded, original tunes were included on Perchance to Dream: the ballad “When I Close My Eyes” by K. Lawrence Dunham and Carol Robbins and the bluesy “Poor Girl” with lyrics from the poem, Poor Girl by Dr. Maya Angelou and music by Jay Ashby. Reuben says she was, “so grateful to pour my heart into” the two new tunes.
