On May 6, 2006, in the Broletto courtyard in Novara (Italy), a unique event took place, conceived by Luca Cerizza: one of the most intriguing talents of contemporary electronica, Adam Butler (VERT) performed a remix of all of the music that had appeared in the course of the festival, while the courtyard's mediaeval setting became the backdrop for the video installations of artist Luca Trevisani.

The sonig label now presents a CD (dedicated to Jelly Roll Morton) of this event.

New Thing at Novara, despite having been constructed in a one-week frenzy in a hotel room in Novara during the festival, incorporating recordings of each of the concerts immediately after they took place, is simultaneously two things: a richly representative document of the singular breadth of VERT's music, at once groovy, noisy, tender, beguiling and slyly humourous; and a respectful testimony to the huge variety of musicians who performed at the Festival, without whose support this CD would not have been possible: Mina Agossi, Nik Baertsch's Ronin, Di Terra Trio, Louis Moholo & Stan Tracey, Fabrizio Ottaviucci, Matthew Shipp & Guillermo E. Brown, Gianluigi Trovesi, David S. Ware, The World Saxophone Quartet.
