Newvelle Records Vinyl Project Launches Season Two Via Kickstarter

The jazz subscription vinyl-only label Newvelle, which had a successful first year, releasing albums by Frank Kimbraugh, Jack DeJohnnette, Noah Preminger, Don Friedman, Ben Allison and Leo Genovese (feauturing Esperanza Spalding and Jack DeJohnette), just announced its second year kickstarter launch.

You can listen to selections from the DeJohnette and Kimbraugh albums with Newvelle's kind permission.

Next year's releases have just been announced:

John Patitucci Trio Featuring Yotam Silberstein and Rogerio Boccato
Kevin Hays and Lionel Loueke Duo
Jon Cowherd Quartet featuring Steve Cardenas, Tony Sher and Brian Blade
Chris Tordini Trio featuring Becca Stevens and Greg Ruggerio
Aruán Ortiz solo piano revisiting the music of the great Cuban classical composer Ignacio Cervantes
Rufus Reid Trio with Steve Allee and Duduka Da Fonseca and featuring the Sirius String Quartet

All of the records are recorded and mixed by multiple grammy winning engineer Marc Urselli at East Side Sound in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Mastering is at Masterdisk.

Newvelle also announced that for a pledge of 375 Euros (or more), which is about $413, it will ship on December 6th box set editions of the first year's records that can be ordered now for delivery by Christmas (the first 250 orders). The box is shown at the top of this story.

I subscribed to the 1st series and entering into the 2nd requires no thought. The music through the 1st series is new and remarkable. The recordings are beautifully accomplished. I was astonished to read, after the fact, that they are from digital sources (the mastering is analog). Fooled me!! I fully recommend the project. It's exciting stuff.

I renewed for Series 2 earlier this month. I just received the 5th installment of Series 1 yesterday
(Ben Allison/Ted Nash/Steve Cardenas) and it is simply wonderful. I agree with shellac45A that the sound of all of the recordings thus far is superb.
