Nica’s Dream was composed by Horace Silver. He wrote the piece for Pannonica de Koenigswarter, a supporter and friend to many jazz musicians in the bebop era. It is important to listen to the original recording to check out the arrangement. In addition to its AABA form, it includes an intro, tag between solos, and a coda ending. It is also important to note that the A sections have a latin feel, while the B section is swing.
