ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Dreams To Reality” is the first album released from guitarist and composer Stuart Redd. This album has a very live feel greatly enhanced by the remarkable rhythm section performances of drummer Dave Weckl, bassists Ric Fierabracci, Tom Kennedy and Kim Stone with added spice and liveliness from percussionist Ramon Yslas. You will also hear outstanding keyboard performances from Jeff Lorber and Dave Weckl’s long-time studio partner Jay Oliver. On top of that, add in truly phenomenal solo performances from trumpeter Randy Brecker, and saxophonists Eric Marienthal and Gary Meek. Dave also co-produced and mixed all the songs on the project except "Crystal Shores".

Composing the songs for this CD while having his favorite players in mind, Stuart could not have imagined the day would come when he would actually meet these great players and have them play on his CD.

The real magic began, when after composing the songs, Stuart ran across Dave Weckl’s website and read the words “Have Dave play on your next project.” Stuart sent an email to the contact address and that day everything changed. Instant encouragement came when Dave personally replied from Europe. Dave dug the drum grooves, especially since they were created with his style in mind. The project was off and running making an unknown guitarist’s wildest dreams become a reality; hence the title of the CD, “Dreams To Reality.”


Born and raised in Laurel, Mississippi, Stuart Redd spent most of his young adult life on the road touring the northeast. Tours included Detroit, New York, Pennsylvania then on to New Orleans. Stuart now resides in Florida. Some of his musical influences include Lee Ritenour, Russ Freeman and The Rippingtons, Jeff Lorber, Michel Camilo, Oscar Peterson, Mike Stern, Scott Henderson, The Pat Metheny Group, Fourplay, Chick Corea and the Elektric Band, Gino Vannelli, Eric Johnson and Shawn Lane.
