Welcome to my official music site! -John
Decades after establishing himself as a progressive jazz fusion great via his bands, "Niacin" featuring Billy Sheehan and Dennis Chambers and "The John Novello Project" featuring Eric Marienthal, Melvin Davis and Rayford Griffin, composer/keyboardist Novello is a fast-emerging Smooth Jazz star. Building upon the foundation he laid with three hit Billboard singles from 2016's "Ivory Soul", he stirs a blend of lively, funk-filled romps and dreamy, sensual, romantic ballads on "Good To Go." The clever album title perfectly captures the spritely energy and graceful elegance he creates with longtime collaborator Eric Mariemnthal on sax, plus two of the genres brightest young saxophonists - Jeff Ryan and Jazmin Ghent. The title track "Good To Go" went number 1 on many charts including the prestigious Billboard Jazz Chart for several weeks!
