John Sheridan and His Dream Band: Dream Band, Make Me Dream Some More

For his “Dream Band,” Sheridan arranges a swinging sentimental journey of 17 dream-theme songs, inviting both individual and aggregate invention. There’s fluent interaction between Randy Reinhart playing cornet, trumpet and trombone, Dan Barrett doubling on trumpet and trombone, and multi-reedsmen Brian Ogilvie and Ron Hockett. Rebecca Kilgore contributes five sweetly sassy vocals, excelling on Johnny Mercer’s “Dream.” The solid rhythm section propels throughout, fueled by guitarist Reuben Ristrom, bassist Phil Flanigan and drummer Jeff Hamilton. First-class mainstream swing.
