Newvelle Records is proud to present The Renewal Collection, a limited edition four-album series affirming the resilience of music through the anguish and loss of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The collection, Newvelle’s first series release in two years, features original compositions from Elan Mehler, Michael Blake, Dave Liebman, and Nadje Noordhuis.

Mehler's There Is A Dance pays tribute to the artist's late mother and features all original compositions. Joining him in this trio are two outstanding artists and Newvelle alumni: bassist Tony Scherr and percussionist Francisco Mela.

Combobulate, headlined by Blake on saxophone, features the debut of a world-class brass sextet – a much needed explosion of color and joy from the artist’s inimitable musical mind. Holding court with a titanic low end are two iconic tuba players Bob Stewart and Marcus Rojas. Steven Bernstein (trumpet) and Clark Gayton (trombone) round out the brass section and the phenomenal Allan Mednard holds down the drum chair in this one-of-a-kind ensemble.

Trust and Honesty is an all-balad, historic release from Liebman – a personal and raw exposition of the artist's legendary sound and concept. The NEA Jazz Master is joined by guitarist Ben Monder and bassist Jon Hébert. In this unprotected, drumless context, true mastery is apparent.

Noordhuis’s Full Circle features all original compositions and an incredible lineup of Fred Hersch on piano, Thomas Morgan on bass and Rudy Royston on drums. Her sound on the trumpet and flugelhorn is pure, unique and unmistakable. This date features an absolutely stellar band coalescing around Nadje’s visionary compositions.
