AMERICAN DREAMERS MAKE SOME JOYOUS NOISE

Grammy-nominated trumpeter, composer and arranger John Daversa has delivered a brand new project called American Dreamers: Voices of Hope, Music of Freedom (BFM Jazz), which is performed by the John Daversa Big Band—along with a group of talented DACA artists.

The 53 “Dreamers” on the album come from 17 U.S. states and 17 countries of origin, but they share the same desire: to be recognized as Americans. Brought to the U.S. illegally as children, this group and millions like them, now face an uncertain future as politicians delay and debate their fate.

A project masterminded by Daversa along with producers Kabir Sehgal and Doug Davis, the album features 18 songs that speak directly to their plight in a compelling way, such as “America” from West Side Story, Woody Guthrie’s “Deportee (Plane Wreck At Los Gatos)” and James Brown’s “Living in America.”

The album is available via all retailers and DSPs today.
