Jan. 9 - Novelli Upcoming CD Projects

Peter 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.
The 2nd CD is a collection of 11 new Novelli-penned blues/R&B/funk originals, recorded at Friendly Fish Studio in St Amant in the Louisiana bayous. Again working with coproducer and drummer Brian Brignac (Sonny Landreth, Wayne Toups,etc) Peter has put together a Louisiana allstar team of musicians including a return by vocalist Elaine Foster (Dr John, BB King, etc).
Look for a 2019 release for both projects.

Accolades for Novelli's 3rd CD, St. Amant Sessions

“Novelli possesses a guitar capability that is heads and shoulders above many of his contemporaries. He is playing is facile and intelligent across the sub-genre of his oeuvre.” —C. Michael Bailey, All About Jazz (June 7, 2015)

“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)

“guitar virtuoso”
