(George Bouchard)

On his fourth recording as a leader, saxophonist/composer George Bouchard offers up a collection of pleasing original songs and performances. Listen to Your Dreams is thoroughly enjoyable production that finds Bouchard leading a sextet through an array of tunes that are a mix of ballads and uptempo jams. The New York-based educator and composer is joined by a sturdy line of players, which includes Dave Smith on trumpet and flugelhorn, Charles Blenzig on piano, Andrew Grossbard on tenor sax, Ian Petillo on drums and John Ray on bass. The group sounds great playing Bouchard’s terrific notes.
