Pursuing the same deeply soulful vocal jazz tradition exemplified by Babs Gonzales, Billie Holliday, Joe Williams and Leon Thomas, The Dreamer quickly cemented Jose's stature and raw talent within the worldwide jazz community, and beyond. Since The Dreamer Jose has performed in maybe 30 countries, worked with some of the best, wisest and finest artists in the world such as Chico Hamilton and Junior Mance and he has built a community of friends and fellow music-lovers all over the globe.

"faves are the title cut where homage is paid to Rev Dr MLK Jr the ultimate Dreamer and the cut Park Bench People where he talks about the day in the life of a homeless person. "
