Album Notes
Nova swings again on his new CD, I Could Have Told You. In addition to new recordings, Nova pulled three recordings from his vault of guest artists he has recorded with over the years: “Day by Day” and “I Love You” with the amazing Eddie Harris, and “Secret Love” with Fred Wesley. It doesn’t get any better than these great horn players mixing it up with Nova’s Guitar! In addition, Nova has released his original tune “Where’s Buddy?”, a tune dedicated to his dear friend Buddy Catlett. Enjoy the beautiful technique and artistry of Brian Nova’s Jazz guitar and vocals on I Could Have Told You.
