Newvelle Records' First Album of Season Two is Shipping Now!

Newvelle Records is excited to be sharing the first record of their Second Season with members now.  Irmãos de Fé featuring John Patitucci, Yotam Silberstein and Rogério Boccato is a truly beautiful and unique recording of all Brazillian music

What if it's about the song?

There is a paradox in the regional specificity of these songs and their overwhelming universal truth. Music that speaks not just across languages but through a deeper medium. These songs are not conveyances for improvisational flights of fancy. John, Yotam and Rogerio bring their considerable gifts and unique voices to express the song, and the song alone, and perhaps that is the higher calling. 

– excerpted from the liner notes by Elan Mehler

The second release of Season Two features Lionel Loueke and Kevin Hays showing some super-human telepathy on an album of all original material.  Check out a sample on the In The Studio page.

Our third release of Season Two is a band led by Jon Cowherd, featuring Brian Blade, Tony Scherr and Steve Cardenas.  Check out a sample on the In The Studio page.
