Novello & Friends - Feliz Navidad (2014) (MP3)
Novello & Friends - Feliz Navidad (2014) (MP3)Novello and Friends - 2014 - We were joined by many friends and the DMI music students for this song. God blessed us with the talent we have and we would like to share that, if we could give a gift to all of you guys it would be a song that uplifted the spirit and promoted harmony. So that's exactly what we did! We wanted to do a fun song for the holidays and although we love traditional music we only had an opportunity to do one song before Christmas, we choose "Feliz Navidad" because we felt it had a great message and a very uplifting feel. If you like the song and want a copy to keep, just look to the bottom of our band page (www.thenovelloband.com)and download for free. We hope you enjoy listening to this as much as we enjoyed making it. We were joined by some wonderful friends along with several students of DMI music school. A huge thanks to all who sang, played and participated in this! You all did great! Once again ... a very Merry Christmas from Novello! Track Includes: Novello Ralph Toldeo John Rainey Roscoe Edney Mikayla Smith Vince Tiberi Orlando Colon Alejandra Soto-Colon Lil' Roscoe Elainena Copley Canute We wish all of you a very Merry Christmas, take care and God Bless!

Novello - I Wish That It Would Rain (Snippet 7.29.13)
Novello - I Wish That It Would Rain (Snippet 7.29.13)Novello loves the Temps ... that is an awesome classic tune that we were going to do with a local rap artist two years ago, but the project fell through and we ended up only doing a skeletal scratch recording of it on a Zoom H-4 with a bass, clean electric guitar, vocals and an actual Seiko metronome. Although I am a little tired of seeing rain, this is a baddass song, maybe we will finish it up one day, here is a snippet of the tune ....enjoy and Rock On!
Novello - Black Diamond 6-21-13
Novello - Black Diamond 6-21-13This is our acoustic arrangement of a really fantastic song called "Black Diamond", all copyright credits to Stratovarius, we made this to practice with pro Tools and for our own enjoyment as well as the honor to play music from such a talented band. This will more than likely be one of our last acoustic cover song recordings, after a year of writing, we finally have enough of our own originals to be recorded and we will begin looking towards that, we want to thank everyone for the positive feedback, support and believing in us over the past year. We can hardly wait to share what we have written with you. Much love ... Novello

Novello - Summer Breeze 10.30.12
Novello - Summer Breeze 10.30.12This is one of those songs we always heard on the radio growing up and thought was really cool .. we pretty much sat on the floor of my room with the acoustic guitar and pressed record on a little 4 track Zoom H-4 recorder and jammed ... had a blast doing it. Preformed and recorded by Novello, all ownership and copyright credits to Seals & Crofts.
Novello - Brucia La Terra 10.27.12
Novello - Brucia La Terra 10.27.12A metal / folk cover by Novello. We learned this song about two years ago while watching (The Godfather III). We later heard Slash / G&R do a cover of this that was a bit more bluesy and really rocked well. We decided to take it in a completely different direction and do the authenic Sicilian vocals and classical intro, aside from the classical guitar intro, a guitar solo was added based solely on c minor and avoided the blues scales all together in an effort to make the arrangement completely different from what Slash and G&R did. The signature musical theme that opens the piece closely models a theme that appears early in the Overture to "La Forza del Destino" by Giuseppe Verdi. There are also different sets of lyrics for the song in Italian ("Parla Più Piano") and also in Sicilian ("Brucia La Terra"). The Sicilian version is sung by Anthony Corleone (Franc D'Ambrosio) in The Godfather Part III. As a gift at a gathering, he performs the traditional Sicilian ballad "Brucia La Terra" (the official theme of the trilogy). All copyright credits for Nino Rota. Arrangements and performance by Novello .... we have only three words ... Crank It Up!
