Grammy nominated Bassist and one of the founding member of Jazz / R&B legends PIECES OF A DREAM, Cedric A. Napoleon first toured and recorded with the Manhattans and Harold Melvin’s Blue Notes and later toured exclusively with Grover Washington Jr.
Since that time, Napoleon has shared the stage with such notable figures as Phyllis Hyman, Angela Bofill, Patti Labelle, Jeffery Osborne, Stevie Wonder, Cuba Gooding Jr., Teddy Pendergrass, Dizzy Gillespie, and a host of others.
He launched his own solo career in 2013, and released his first solo album in 2016, Yesterday Today.
"Soul is the feeling of the spirit and jazz is the access to it," explains Napoleon.
