Featured in TIR Episode 139 (Parts 1 and 2): A founding member of a cornerstone act of the smooth jazz movement — Pieces of a Dream drummer-composer Curtis Harmon. As the first act signed to legendary saxophonist Grover Washington Jr.’s production company the trio jumped off in the early 1980s with three foundational albums produced by Washington.
