Gil Defay's new album, It's All Love draws from his background in jazz, soul, and hiphop to create a collection of rich and accessible tunes that are all crafted with a generous dose of love. Join me and Gil as we talk about Mariah Carey, growing up a preacher's son, playing all F's on the trumpet, and a bunch of other related stuff.

It's All Love features Ansy Defay on tenor/soprano saxophones and vocals, Rakiem Walker on alto saxophone, Toku Jazz on flugelhorn, Antonio Penalva on guitar, Joel Desroches on keyboards, Matthew Smythe on organ/wurlitzer, Parker McAllister and Michael "Tiny" Lindsey Lindsey on bass, Ben Nicolas on drums, Bendji Allonce on percussion, and Patrick Pelissier on vocoder.
