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”
