Various — Freedom Jazz Dance – Book 2 ... LP 18.99

An amazing little set – far greater even than the already-excellent first volume, and a treasure trove of modern dancefloor jazz that includes a fair bit of previously unissued numbers! The vibe here is very firmly in the Schema records old/new blend of jazz and grooves – but it's also expanded nicely to include work from key combos on the current global club jazz underground – that spreading scene that's finally getting around to playing real jazz with real soul, instead of just noodling around with samples of saxophones! The feel throughout is tremendous – a near-classic blend of acoustic instrumental approaches to jazz, with just the right electric augmentation to kick things up a notch or two without dampening the soul. Titles include "Lead The Way" by Soulstance, "1974" by Jukka Eskola, "My Love Samba" by Luis Ferri, "Solifer Lento" by Dalindeo, "Some Kind Of Blues (jazz mood inst)" by S-Tone Inc, "Heroes of The Conquest" by The Invisible Session, "Stars" by Paolo Fedreghini & Marco Bianchi, "Mr Bond" by Quartetto Moderno, and "Yes & No" by Quintetto Lo Greco. 11 tracks in all.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
