Watching musicians on TV at three years old, John Novello clearly heard a voice that told him to point to the keyboard, saying, “That’s It! Point to It Now!” That was John’s first acquaintance with The Invisible Architect that began guiding and orchestrating his life.
Following the directives provided by his Invisible Architect, John created a life as a touring and studio professional musician that led him ultimately to become a Billboard Magazine top smooth jazz keyboard artist with his worldwide hit “Good to Go.” And to write the seminal manual, The Contemporary Keyboardist, that today is used everywhere for music instruction. John has played with or worked with Taste of Honey, Manhattan Transfer, Ramsey Lewis, Edgar Winter, Ritchie Cole, Chick Corea, Gerald Albright, Eric Marienthal, Tom Scott and more. And he is a founding member of fusion trio Niacin, along with legendary bassist Billy Sheehan and drummer extraordinaire Dennis Chambers, a group that has remained a defining leader in progressive jazz rock.
