You Go To My Head by Ivory Dreams

Ivory Dreams, a Chicago-based band, released this short, eight-minute, two-song, incredibly professional produced EP as a demo of their abilities. The sound is light soul with unmistakable R&B undertones that fits into the modern smooth jazz leaning towards contemporary jazz radio format.

"You Go To My Head" features their male vocalist’s round soulful inflections placed in front of a wonderfully produced backing track. The band is polished and refined and gives just the right sense of ease of freedom making the song one of the better covers of this ever popular song ever recorded. "Poquito Spanish, Poquito Funk" an all-instrumental track, features a nice harmon-muted trumpet solo and some tasteful keyboard work.

If there is a problem with this disc, it’s that it lacks any information on the members of the group. While the band’s website lists a number of incredible testimonials on their abilities to play private parties, and rest assured this band sounds way better than your run-of-the-mill average wedding band, knowing some particulars about the band members would be helpful to prospective employers. While there are a number of different photos of the group and individual band members on the back of the jewel case, this still leaves a great deal of information unaccounted for.
