"My compositions on ‘Chronology of a Dream' focus on thematic development within short form structures with memorable melodic themes," Batiste wrote of the release on Twitter." (https://lab.fm/genres/jazz/jon-batiste-releases-live-album-chronology-of-a-dream/) Batiste wrote all but two of the songs on offer and those songs are "Soulful" (Roy Hargrove) and "Story" co-written with Hargrove, who sang on "ORDR".  Accompanying musicians are Joe Saylor (drums), Negah Santos (percussion), Phil Kuehn (bass), Tivon Pennicott (tenor sax), Patrick Bartley (alto sax), Giveton Gelin (trumpet), Jon Lampley (tuba, trumpet) and Louis Cato (guitar on  "BLACCK").
