NOVA-Albanian Rhapsody is a debut album in both performance and composition for the father and son team, composer Anesti Nova and trombonist James Nova.

All but one piece in this world premiere collection of compositions is for solo trombone and either string or chamber orchestra. The music is ethnically charged, deriving much influence and flavor from Mediterranean folk styles and melodies. It is at times tragic, languid and yet uplifting as it chronicles, with the trombone as storyteller, the journey of the Nova family through hardships and eventual triumph over adversity.
