Gotta Play 'Em All! Trevor Gomes' Classic Pokémon Themes For Piano


Like lots of 10-year olds,Trevor Gomes was completely sucked into the world of Pokémon! Years later, he and a group of talented arrangers recreated all those happy memories of the classic Pokémon games with stunning piano arrangements and performances.

A successful Kickstarter campaign meant that all together, the album contains every single melody from the original Pokémon games: Yellow, Blue, Red and Green, plus some performances that feature pianist Kyle Landry. Trevor says his goal with every track was to stay true to its essence, while expanding on it and making it more sophisticated.

The album is available in Apple Music,Bandcamp, and through theMateria Collective.
