Gary Brunotte's debut album 'Yesterday's Dream' is full of energy and pulsating rhythms performed in a contemporary jazz style. A Jazztimes magazine review called it
". . . an eminently appealing date featuring saxman Eric Marienthal, bassists Jimmy (Flim) Johnson and Gordy Johnson, drummers Bill Berg and Gordy Knudtson, percussionists Brad Dutz and Marc Anderson and vocalist Lucia Newell. Brunotte is a crisp, indeed intelligent player whose charts sizzle and yet leave plenty of space for inspired soloring . . . . along with Brunotte's bracing originals are attractive reframings of 'If I Only Had A Brain' and 'Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most.' In all, a first-class effort -- tres musical!"
Billboard magazine said the following:
"Minneapolis-based pianist/composer Brunotte dishes up a solid contemporary jazz set (with traditional overtones) . . . . Highlights of an enjoyable outing include the strong swinging 'A la Horace'; the hard-hitting 'Recollections'; the cool, uptempo 'Slightly Blued'; and the funky 'Caterpillar Crossing."
The CD was on the national airwaves throughout the fall of 1993 and made the Gavin Chart Bound list for 8 weeks straight.
