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.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
