Stuart Redd

A Dream Come True Hi Everyone. I want to thank you for visiting the website and checking out my Contemporary Jazz and Latin music project – “Dreams To Reality.” It is the result of a very personal journey and a dream come true. For many years, I carried the inner desire to create music that would represent what was playing in my head, although I was never able to fully document or express that music until this CD. So as a result of many pieces of the puzzle falling into place along with several miracles, I am happy to present to you, the listener, my CD of original compositions. The Early Years These songs represent glimpses into my past and are the cumulative effect of the music I heard early on in my life

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
