American Dream portrays the mindset of many of this generation’s young Americans. On this recording, trumpeter/composer Taylor Haskins broaches topics contrasting the idealistic and realistic United States through his depictive compositions and arrangements of modern American classics by Neil Young, The Foo Fighters, and Tom Waits. American Dream features Haskins backed by a sympathetic group of phenomenal musicians including guitarist Ben Monder, bassist Ben Street, and drummer Jeff Hirshfield. Haskins notes, “This album is a meditation on the concepts of: Breakdown – a collapse of a system of authority due to widespread transgression of the rules. Destruction – the action or process of causing so much damage to something that it no longer exists or cannot be repaired. The Ideal – existing only in the imagination; desirable or perfect but not likely to become a reality. Abandonment – giving up completely a course of action, a practice, or a way of thinking. Memory – the power of the mind to remember things.

Narrator: Susan Boyce

American society has become anti-male. Men are sensing the backlash and are responding. They're dropping out of college, leaving the workforce, and avoiding marriage and fatherhood at alarming rates. The trend is so pronounced that a number of books have been written about this man-child phenomenon, concluding that men have taken a vacation from responsibility. But why should men participate in a system that seems to be increasingly stacked against them?
