* The great Grover Washington, Jr. discovered, nurtured, and produced Pieces Of A Dream while they were teenage phenoms still in high school. Since then they have toured the world, sold over two million albums, and scored both smooth jazz and R&B radio hits while garnering legions of dedicated fans!

* Fired Up is a funky, joyful musical celebration, filled with the melodic grooves that have made Pieces Of A Dream fan favorites. The 10 brilliant originals that run the gamut from 'in the pocket' R&B to sensuous smooth jazz jams are proof that Pieces Of A Dream are at the top of their game!!

* Founding member, keyboardist James Lloyd, who has been a go-to hitmaker and accompanist for such artists as Mary J. Blige, BB King, Najee, Wayman Tisdale, and others, shines here with such highlights as the driving "In Too Deep" and the heartfelt ballad "Going Home." Additionally, co-founder percussionist Curtis Harmon's composition, the exciting "Living the Life", demonstrates why the "Pieces" sound is a unique crowd pleaser!

* Radio: Several singles will be worked to Smooth Jazz radio, beginning with the title track, "Fired Up."
