Jack Novotny is a jazz saxophonist and composer currently residing in Bluffton, SC, 30 minutes north of Savannah, GA and just west of Hilton Head Island, SC. He has performed with several regional jazz groups and a variety of his musical compositions have been performed by other jazz musicians. Jack is currently leading an ensemble called “Project Novo” that has provided a platform for his performance and writing abilities into a new genre of music which he has no label.
PROJECT NOVO is a compilation of musicians and musical experiences originating from my background. It started with straight ahead bop and post bop jazz music and continues to expand by incorporating various genre’s of music, including jazz fusion, funk, groove, hip-hop, rap, spoken word, gospel, and world music rhythms and sounds.
Jack has corroborated with long time composer/arranger, Tom Baker in presenting paradigm changing music in the Christian genre.
Project Novo consists of “live” performances in a variety of venues from club work to festivals and community events. Another one of its primary targets is corporate presentations through musical and lyrical composition to enhance corporate marketing departments in their abilities to promote their products, services, and messaging.
