ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Coming Together Records proudly announces “Amplify”, the second release from Phoenix-based guitarist and composer Pete Gitlin. Following up on “Full Circle and the Great Temptation”, and its #1 hit “Sunshine Days”, “Amplify” stakes out new ground in the alternative jazz genre. Early previews of the CD describe it as “the Sgt. Pepper of smooth jazz”, in that each of the ten tracks are very different, and yet they hang together as an inspiring and uplifting work. Far from playing it safe, Gitlin and his producer, John Herrera, from the legendary Arizona fusion band Turning Point, have crafted a dizzying array of styles and songs, from the pure smooth jazz of the joyous single “Lucky in Love”, to the neo-soul of “Soul Connection”, to the raunchy beat of “Reggaetown”, to the country/jazz feel of “Cowboys and Indians”, to the Philly-soul sound of “Until the Morning Comes”. A truly unique work, with production and excitement rare in the smooth jazz genre.

Plus there are fantastic performances from a variety of notable jazz stars, including:

Cindy Bradley - trumpet and flugelhorn
Jeff Kashiwa – saxophones, flutes and EWI (electronic wind instrument)
Dominic Amato – saxophones, EWI and vocoder
Michael Broening – keyboards
Mel Brown - bass
Dennis Rowland (former Count Basie vocalist)- vocals

SmoothJazz.com Review
Arizona based guitarist and composer Pete Gitlin rockets a second solo album our way with AMPLIFY, featuring a bevy of jazz notables, including Cindy Bradley, Jeff Kashiwa, Dominic Amato, Michael Broening, Mel Brown, and former Count Basic vocalist Dennis Rowland. In his own words, Pete tells us that “AMPLIFY is all about amplifying the joy that we feel when we discover exciting new music.” Amen to that, bro’! This is all strong original material, brilliantly played and brilliantly produced (by John Herrera from the band “Turning Point”) contemporary jazz, in all its variety of styles. It’s got energy, it’s got soul, it’s got panache, it’s got that aforementioned excitement, and it’s got my attention. It’ll grab your attention, too, as soon as you give it a much-deserved listen. Pete Gitlin’s AMPLIFY is proof positive that there’s more hot stuff coming out of Phoenix these days than just the weather!
