Every track on Perchance to Dream has been given a unique treatment. The album kicks off with a jazz waltz version of the Irving Berlin standard, Change Partners followed by a powerful original tune, one of two on the album, “Poor Girl” with lyrics from the poem Poor Girl by the late Dr. Maya Angelou and music by Jay Ashby. Next is a mambo performance of “Close Enough For Love” and a playful Samba rendition of “Pure Imagination.” The second original composition is a beautiful ballad entitled “When I Close My Eyes” written specifically for Gloria by K. Lawrence Dunham and Carol Robbins. “How Am I to Know” has a Bossa Nova feel and the classic ballad, “Save Your Love for Me” has been given a contemporary adaptation. The album includes a swinging “You Better Love Me” and a sexy jazz rock version of “Sharing The Night With The Blues”. The record ends with an acoustic depiction of “Here’s To Life,” just as powerful as any production ever done.
Gloria says, “I am so grateful and honored to have created such a beautiful album of standards, performed in unique arrangements, with the incredibly talented musicians at MCG Jazz!” Perchance to Dream’s producer, and Executive Producer of MCG Jazz, Marty Ashby says, “I am proud to say that this record has something for everyone and showcases Gloria’s musical versatility. We here at MCG Jazz are thrilled to have her as a part of our family.”
Ashby first met Gloria by chance when stopping in at B.B King’s in New York City, in January 2013. Reuben’s presence during her performance resonated with Ashby and for the past two years, she has become connected to the people at and immersed in the programs of Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild. A mutual belief in doing good things in the community through art compelled Ashby and Reuben to team up and create Perchance to Dream.
