John and Pete  - by Lloyd Wolf.  Didn't Lloyd make us look nice?
John Cropp and Maria "Pete" Durgan welcome you
to the NovaZanz website.
Take a female bass player/songwriter/ vocalist.  Add a latin/jazz guitar player.  Mix with a variety of wonderful drummers.
What results is a recipe for a take on bossa nova, latin and swingin' standards.

If you can imagine sultry vocals with guitar work that feels like Joao Gilberto with lots of Django and a little Joe Pass plus lively percussion you'll  like NovaZanz.
NovaZanz plays originals and other songs, including those written and performed by Antonio Carlos Jobim, Django Reinhardt, Luiz Bonfa, Cole Porter, Astrud Gilberto, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, Nina Simone, Frank Sinatra, Nat "King" Cole,  Van Morrison, Elvis Presley and a wide variety of other artists.

It's cool, it's smooth, it's light, it's deep.  It's NovaZanz.
