Jonathan Butler's 22nd studio album, 2014's "Living My Dream", showcases the South African-born singer/guitarist/songwriter's distinctive smooth jazz and R&B sound. Joining Butler here are such musical luminaries as bassist Marcus Miller, saxophonist Elan Trotman, guitarist/songwriter Dennis Dodd, Jr., and Butler's daughter, vocalist Jodie Butler, who duets with her father on "Night to Remember".

Living My Dream from South African singer-songwriter and guitarist Jonathan Butler is a bountiful feast of contemporary jazz instrumentals and soul-mined R&B vocal cuts, all original songs he produced and tracked live in the House of Blues studio in Los Angeles. Like Butler’s best material from a diverse, award-winning and chart-topping career that has spanned R&B, jazz, pop and gospel, Living My Dream provides an honest and revealing soulfully-inspired songbook probing the artist’s life and loves: God, family and his homeland. The album includes a reprise of the instrumental tune African Breeze, originally composed by Butler for the 1985 film The Jewel of the Nile starring Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner and Danny DeVito.
