Gerardo FrisinaJoin The Dance ... LP
Schema (Italy), 2010. New Copy 2LP ... $19.99
Modal brilliance from Gerardo Frisina – possibly his greatest album ever, and a set that really shows his true transformation into a jazzman! The set's got a wide range of acoustic jazz instrumentation played live, and features none of the rhythm programs you might get on earlier Frisina records – a shift that has him moving in the same classic jazz space as labelmate Nicola Conte! As with Conte's recent records, there's a warmth and soul here that's undeniable – a feel that wraps up 50s Blue Note, 60s Italian jazz, and 70s MPS with ease – delivering something new and fresh for a younger generation in the process. Core instrumentation includes vibes, piano, tenor, flute, and trombone – and the set features guest vocals by Norma Winstone on one track, and Francesca Sortino on another. All other titles are instrumental, and tunes include "Titoro", "Joy Shout", "Will You Walk A Little Faster", "Tata Somba", "Mille E Una Notte", "High Hat", "Bubbly", and "Another Waltz".

Gerardo FrisinaLatin Kick ... CD
Schema (Italy), 2005. New Copy ... $16.99
The Latin Kick – with a jazzy groove! Gerardo Frisina's long been one of our favorite talents on the international groove underground, and like his labelmate and sometime musical partner Nicola Conte, he's got a way of crafting tracks that are awash in classic jazz touches. Frisina himself is the producer, arranger, and composer of the album – and brings together acoustic jazz players with warmer beats, all in service of a groove that sparkles with all the best Schema Records touches, but also takes the label's sound to a whole new level! The Frisina heard here is bolder and more ambitious than before – and like Nicola Conte on recent sides, he's stepping past simple Latin-flavored tracks into boldly jazzy numbers that expand upon his ideas with a range of colors, tones, and rhythms. Easily one of the best full-length sets on Schema to date – and that's saying a lot – with titles that include "Senor Rico", "Jazz Ally", "The 7th Day", "Batucafro", "Cortante", "Bite The Nite", "Gosto De Que E Bom", and "Hush".

Gerardo FrisinaPassion Dance/Space In Time ... 12-inch
Schema (Italy), 2014. New Copy (pic cover)... $12.99
Spacey club grooves from Gerardo Frisina – blending cosmic dancefloor sounds with a genuine dose of jazzy instrumentation! Frisina often flirts with modern club influences, and on "Passion Dance" and "Space In Time" he nearly goes all the way – or at least gets to third base. Both cuts have tripped out atmosphere to spare, and steady, prominent dancefloor beats – but the jazzy keys, sax and other elements keep it loosely rooted in jazz, however abstract. "Space In Time" also includes some hypnotic, hazy vocals by Francesca Sortino. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Gerardo Frisina & Maurizio BonizzoniThrough The Night/Superstrut ... 7-inch
Schema (Italy), 2014. New Copy (pic cover)... $12.99
Jazzy instrumentation and clubby grooves from Gerardo Frisina & Maurizio Bonizzoni, aka DJ Skizo! "Through The Night" kicks off a slow cooking bass groove and a percolating beat, but it doesn't take long for the keys, sax, flute and vibraphone to kick in, and really nice, timeless jazz funk vibe over. They up the tempo a bit on the equally strong flip "Superstrut". The beat and electric keys are prominent, but there's some echoey/spacey touches that give it a slightly more tripped out vibe. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Perez PradoCircle (orig, Gerardo Frisina re-edit) ... 7-inch
Schema (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99
A really great tune from the funk years of Perez Prado – that overlooked time when Prado had left the American mainstream, but picked up plenty of soulful touches from the underground – which he uses here to make "Circle" sound like some monstrous bit of badass blacksploitation soundtrack material! The original is great – and the Frisina edit pulls out some of the key rhythmic elements and strips things downa bit. 7-inch, Vinyl record

New Motion Collective featuring Gerardo FrisinaBurak EP ... LP
AMA Edizioni (Italy), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Gerardo Frisina wrote, produced, and arranged the material on this sweet little EP – and the whole thing's got the same sort of driving, percussive vibe as his own classic records for the Schema label! Yet there's also a deeper, more globally-conscious sort of sound going on here – as tenor, soprano sax, flute, and both acoustic and electric piano combine with the rhythms – bringing in elements from Latin, African, and Eastern sources – all in a hypnotic blend that's mighty nice all the way through! Titles include the lovely "Zagara", plus "Michael's Vision", and both regular and jazz versions of "Burak". LP, Vinyl record album

New Gerardo Frisina & Maurizio BonizzoniVoices Of The Jungle/Orient (10 inch vinyl) ... 12-inch
Schema (Italy), 2013. New Copy (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
Latin groover Gerardo Frisina's got a key new partner here – DJ Maurizio Bonnizoni, who helps give the single an upbeat, club-heavy vibe! "Voices Of The Jungle" still has all the earthy elements we love in Gerardo's music – acoustic piano and percussion, and an overall spirit that echoes the late 50s exotic years – yet Maurizio also kicks things up with a house-heavy bassline at the bottom, which drives the tune in a very different way! "Orient" follows in similar spirit – with keyboards, tenor, and sweet percussion – but all kicked up with a warm clubby groove! 12-inch, Vinyl record

VariousMetti Una Bossa A Cena Vol 2 ... LP
Schema (Italy), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP ... $22.99
Sublime bossa groovers from Italy! The first volume of this series was one of our favorite compilations that year it was released – and this second volume is equally as great! Schema groover Gerardo Frisina serves up a hand-picked batch of 16 tunes, mostly classic numbers from the late 60s and early 70s, pulled from the ranks of Italian soundtrack, jazz, and easy listening albums – all with a flair for making the bossa even groovier than it already is! Electric keyboards abound – and the rhythms run from dreamy to driving to slightly funky, always at the right pace for the material, and always making the set dance with delight! Titles include "Incontro All'Aereoporto" by Piero Piccioni, "Allora, Il Treno" by Bruno Nicolai & Edda Dell'Orso, "Avances" by Gerardo Frisina, "Wind" by Red Redford Sound System One, "Bossalonga" by Mustang, "Unreality Landscape" by Angel Pocho Gatti, "Susan Theme" by Daniele Patucchi, "Per Lei" by Stefano Torossi, and "Colpa Tua" by Giancarlo Gazzani.

New VariousBreak N' Bossa – Chapter 8 ... CD
Schema (Italy), 2008. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful bossa groovers galore – and one of the greatest entries so far in a series that never lets us down! Years back when Break N Bossa first started, the concept of older Brazilian modes and contemporary dancefloor rhythms was something of a new idea – but over the years, with the help of titles like this, grooves around the globe are a heck of a lot warmer – filled with acoustic elements that take us back not only to the sounds of Rio in the 60s, but also to the European scene that was so inspired by it in later decades. This time around, there's plenty of greatness to chose from – and there's definitely a deepening of the sound as members of the Schema and other scenes represented here have matured over the years. 2CD set features 26 tracks in all, some previously unreleased – including "VSOP (Beatfanatic edit)" by Stockholm Cyclo, "Pinkie (2008 version)" by Beat Out Shrine, "Jurubeba" by Luis Ferri with Adi Souza, "No Mercy For Me (Alessandro Magnanini rework)" by Mario Biondi, "Ocean (Diggin In The Latin mix)" by The Dining Rooms, "Carolina Carol Bela" by Gerardo Frisina with Anna Clementi, "Carioca (Nicola Conte rmx)" by Fragmentorchestra, "Onde Anda O Meu Amor (Fedreghini & Bianchi rmx)" by Rosalia De Souza, "Que Bandeira (Frisina rmx)" by Rosalia De Souza, "Thin Ice (Fedreghini & Bianchi rmx)" by Dining Rooms, "Till The End (Inverse Cinematics rmx)" by The Invisible Session, "Kind Of Latin Rhythm" by Juju Orchestra, "Aromi" by Nick Bernard, and "Non Stop Flight" by Dalindeo.
