180 Gram Vinyl Record
180-gram clear vinyl LP pressed at Quality Record Pressings!
Newvelle Records compilation album from the first three subscription seasons!
"Newvelle Volume One offers eight numbers from various label sessions, including two previously unreleased numbers. The album begins with a gorgeously restrained version of the ballad 'Last Night When We Were Young' led by pianist Frank Kimbrough. Almost the first sounds we hear, focused and sensitive, come from Andy Zimmerman’s tenor saxophone. Next, the mood changes totally when guitarist Lionel Loueke is heard in a lively duet, 'Aziza,' with pianist Kevin Hays. It’s a two-person carnival. With tenor Ted Nash and guitarist Steve Cardenas, bassist Ben Allison recreates and modernizes Jimmy Guiffre’s trio number, 'Pony Express.' This is chamber music at its best. For Newvelle addicts, the anthology’s highlights are pianist Don Friedman’s previously unreleased 'If I Should Lose You' and Steve Cardenas’ 'There in a Dream,' which begins with Thomas Morgan’s richly rendered bass solo: the sound is detailed as well as warm. I’ve heard Morgan from a few feet away. This is the way he sounds up front, and it’s worth the price of admission." — Michael Ullman, The Arts Fuse, Sept. 24, 2020. Read the entire review here.
"Newvelle Records releases are, one-after-another, simply stunning to behold." — Devore Fidelity
