Album Notes
Originally from Montreal, multi-instrumentalist Brian Dring spent his musically formative years experiencing the city's unique jazz and world-music scene. He made his on-stage debut at the now-defunct Rising Sun Bar (Le Soleil Levant) owned by Doudou Boicel who started what would later become the Montreal Jazz Festival.

Now residing in Connecticut USA, Brian has played the local R&B and jazz circuit for over 10 years, currently as a member of both the 6-piece dance band "N2Wishin" from Bristol and "The Langley Project," a trio based in New Haven. He has backed a number of visiting luminaries such as Chris Calloway and has opened for Tower of Power at Hartford's Webster Theater.

"Every Mother’s Dream" is an album of original jazz compositions with Latin, funk, and world music influences. Musical influences include such jazz pianists as Herbie Hancock and Joe Sample as well as guitarists like George Benson and Norman Brown.



to write a review

Alisha Gomez

A a cool keyboardist and a nice looking guy.
It's a reflexion of his inner self. The other guys in the band would always drown him out on stage, but this is his own personal musical statement and he's got something to say. We girls all thought he was very sexy inna shy kind way, so hell yeah, I'm buying the man's cd.

Terry Jones

Not bad for a solo cd...mellow piano, upright bass, vibes, and sax.
For an unknown, this is not a bad debut album. The time he spent playing behind other acts is evident in the variety of styles. Although this is a jazz album, it is not formulaic like some smooth jazz, with drum machine and sax blaring. This is more laid-back and reflective, kind of old school in some places.
The strongest cuts would have to be #1, #2, #10 and especially #11, the last song which is an original classical piano solo.

Caribbean music reviewer takes it home in a big way!!!
Like Terry Jones, I am knocked out by the classic values of Special K.
Overall, this CD comes out with a burst of joy and optimism, lovely walking tones, lyrics that stick, uplifting overall.
Knowing Dring's precise and knowledgeable work as a reviewer of Caribbean music in THE BEAT, I am impressed at his versatility: this is the incandescent North American jazz piece CD.
Again, Special K knocks me out. I think I am listening to
a giant from the 17th century, despite the 21st tunes that precede. Kudos 5.

Taking his own path of laid-back piano
Brian you've come a long way from back in the day with all the horn lines we had you playing. Your own sound is more jazzy and laid-back (we always knew you were a closet jazz player). I like #10 which keeps with the funk a bit more. Keep it up!
