Finally the very good news got posted on the J-Nova‘s myspace blog:

hey y’all,
during the last weeks we had some great recording sessions for our forthcoming album.. in may ben westbeech and josé james came by our studio in berlin. in april we were at the leroy studios in amsterdam to record with dwele. now we are heading straight to get all the arrangements, orchestrations , additional recordings, editing, mixing.. etc. done.

it was a great honour and pleasure to work and share inspiring studio-time together with all these musicans:

leon ware
phonte (little brother)
paul randolph
ben westbeech
josé james
joe dukie (fat freddie’s drop)
bembe segue
five corners quintet.

so expect a great jazzy soul album to come in fall ’08.

Until their much anticipated album drops, J-Nova fans wont be bored as there’s a new Sonar Kollektiv Orchester album “Guaranteed Niceness” out this month, a new double mix CD Southport Weekender Vol. 7 by J-Nova & Mr Scruff to be released very soon and the Berliners also made a remix for Atjazz‘s ‘Parallels’ off his forthcoming new album “Full Circle”. If you wish to preview that remix and Atjazz’s album, just download his latest podcast ‘Keeping It Deep 07‘.


The new Jazzanova album will be released in October on Verve/Universal Records!
