"...a potent combination of New Orleans street rhythms, swampy backbeats, jazzy infusions, and a most sincere and innovative approach to the blues... one of the best storytellers in the blues today." —Blues Revue
Jan. 9 - Novelli Upcoming CD ProjectsPeter is working on two CD projects. The first, recorded in his "adopted second home" of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, is being coproduced with drummer Guy Frometa (Juan Luis Guerra, Mike Stern, etc). Peter composed 10 original instrumental tracks combining New Orleans funk with Caribbean grooves.
“Novelli’s rhythmically rich tunes have killer licks galore.”—Rick Allen, Vintage Guitar
“Peter Novelli’s third album kicks off with a bang with guest Sonny Landreth’s signature slide guitar on Louisiana Sunrise.
“...as a guitarist, Novelli never overpowers, but carefully crafts his solos with ample individual expression and varying shades and expressions.
“He’s also the rare guitarist who’s in touch with his zydeco side... Novelli’s best groove-bound CD yet.”—Dan Willging, Offbeat Magazine (July 29, 2015)
