"Andrew Allen is back, with a brand new album paying tribute to some of the most iconic soundtracks in (NES) Video Game history.
The Nintendo Entertainment System is an iconic part of video game history. The music of the NES can take us on a nostalgia-driven journey to the best parts of our childhood. Another reason for this album is that Nintendo is releasing the NES Classic in November. The games on the NES Classic will be our selection for this year's Coverville Records release. That means that the CD will have over 30 arrangements produced and recorded by Andrew Allen; the biggest track list in Coverville Records history.
For this album, Andrew will be taking on the entire creative process. Andrew will be going back to his Coverville Records roots with Jazz Piano Trio (lounge/straight-ahead) arrangements for each NES Classic track.
The evolution of Andrew's sound will continue on this album as well. He has explored the sounds of Funk, Blues, and Latin over the years, but one genre that has always remained a constant has been Jazz. This album will take on a "Smooth Federation" quality, creating a relaxed and swingin' vibe for the listener.
Thank you to everyone on Kickstarter who made this happen! We hope you love the album.
