On the Quai
After 20 years of playing piano with dozens of artists the world over (often acting as writer, arranger and musical director) I realized that I was working mainly to help other performers follow their dream. As a musician I have always believed that we have to eventually find our own voice and play the music that best expresses our unique musical spirit and creative potential. Because of this I made a decision to follow my own dream and compose and record my own music to fulfill these desires and needs. The result is my first CD entitled On The Quai (K). I hope you enjoy the musical experience I want to share with you. ... Dean Reviews 'Easy on the ears, Dean's music leaves you with the feeling that all is well in the world and it's time to relax and have a good time!' - Angelo Zenez, Glenbrook Magazine 'There is nothing complex about 'On The Quai'. It sneaks up on you. I was at a party where the CD was playing in the background. After five minutes or so I noticed that I was listening to the music instead of the conversation. I asked our hostess if she knew what was playing and she said,'That's my friend's new CD.' I asked her who her friend was and she pointed to Dean. I went home that night with a copy of 'On The Quai'! - John Allen, Jazz critic for Independent Jazz Review 'Jazz, Easy Listening Jazz, Brazilian flavored Jazz, Latin Funk Jazz. I don't know what to call it because it can't be categorized in any traditional way. It's just really good music!' - Ricardo Gomez, Musician and Publisher Hollywood California 'Timeless!' - Charlyn Bernal, ASCAP Music 'It's not just good, it's really good.' - Remy Koupa Koupoul, Radio Nova France.
