Indie Soul Music Review: Dreamzzz by Philip Lassiter


For all my music lovers, Indie Soul discovered a gem of a CD for you. The CD is entitled “Dreamzzz” by Philip Lassiter and features 11 true music sounds, which combine, hip-hop, soul, jazz, and blues.

Lassiter has an impressive background which includes arranging songs for multi-platinum artists like Prince; Fantasia; Kelly Rowland; Jill Scott; Roberta Flack; Kirk Franklin and many more. The highlights of his career include production and arranging work for seven Grammy winning projects with Fred Hammond and Kirk Franklin in addition to working as section-leader, arranger and lead trumpeter for Prince.

When you listen to Lassiter, you can hear his passion for music and the many styles that inspired him. His songs take the listener on a musical journey as he travels into the land of funk with “Strut” featuring Bernard Wright of Cameo. He gives you a touch of that new school with “Shawty” featuring Jason Waters and Josephine Rojer. And if you are a blues lover, there is the song “Room for the Blues” featuring Jay White. “Dreamzz” contains two outstanding songs “Pick Myself Up” with Tommy Sims, and the sensuous favorite “Liquid In Love” which features Mark Kimble, Joey Kimble and Kim Mont.

Philip Lassiter certainly set the table with a different sampling of what he has to offer musically. True music lovers will appreciate the many sounds of “Dreamzzz.” It’s available on iTunes.
