Novecento's recording Dreams of Peace featuring guitarist Stanley Jordan is a lush production that often melts into smooth jazz grooves, but the level of musicianship and the setails that are added keep this from being a soulless snoozefest. Novecento is comprised of the Nicolosi siblings Dona (vocals), Lino (rhythm guitar), Rosanna (bass), and Pino (keyboards). Along with Jordan, who plays lead guitar on the entire album, the Nicolosis recorded and mixed Dreams of Peace at their studio in Milan, with some additional sessions done in California.
