First Listen: The Dazz Band's Michael J. Calhoun makes us "Dream"

Some SoulTrackers may not know the name Michael J. Calhoun, but they know his music. The Cleveland native is a founding member of the Grammy award winning group The Dazz Band and is an amazing guitarist in his own right.  

After his split from The Dazz Band, Calhoun established a subsequent career with the bands Voyeur, Identity and The Travis Haddix Blues Band, and then as a solo artist, performing soul, funk and even some Gospel music.

We’ve been following Michael for a few years and are always excited to hear new music from him. And he is now back with the tasty “Dream My Life Away,” featuring the beautiful vocals of singer Von James, and the jazzy stylings of pianistDuncan Crooks. The cut is a smooth love song with a cool groove underneath. It should appeal to both soul and smooth jazz lovers, and sounds just right for nighttime listening.
