Andrew Gilpin's first CD, And All That Jazz, is a delightful mix of Latin and swing tunes.
Several pieces written by jazz/classical fusion icon Claude Bolling are featured, as well as a Chick Corea tune,
Randall Thompson's Alleluia (originally a choral work!), and a piece from Andrew himself.

1 - Kaity Stream MP3 Download MP3 Real WMA
Named after Peter's daughter Kaitlan (who was only 2 years old at the time!), Kaity was the first jazz tune
I wrote. A thoughtful intro gives way to a fun Latin feel; I especially like Peter's solo on this track.
2 - Alleluia Stream MP3 Download MP3 Real WMA
Randall Thompson's Alleluia was originally written for unaccompanied chorus, the notes sung entirely

3 - Not This Time Stream MP3 Download MP3 Real WMA
Written by French jazz/classical fusion master Claude Bolling, Not This Time is a classic swing
tune with a great melody.
4 - Garnerama Stream MP3 Download MP3 Real WMA
This piece is Claude Bolling's tribute to great jazz pianist Erroll Garner. It's slow and dreamy, with
lots of open spaces.

If you daydreamed through the last tune, the exciting Latin rhythms of Blue Kiss From Brazil will be sure to wake you up!
6 - All Love Stream MP3 Download MP3 Real WMA
Despite being written for his very first Elektric Band album, Chick Corea's All Love
is actually quite "akoustic". The piano and bass play much of this quiet tune in unison, with the drums remaining in the

The final movement of Claude Bolling's Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano Trio No. 2 truly lives up
to its name! Guest artist Leslie Allt joined the trio on flute, and his fingers were a blur. Remarkably, we managed to record this
in one take!
