Andrea Balducci — Bloom (with bonus track) ... CD 16.99

One of the most soulful albums we've heard from Schema in many years – a brilliant batch of jazzy tracks from singer Andrea Balducci – served up with backing by a great lineup of players from both the Ricky Tick and Schema worlds! The core approach is jazz, but many of the songs are done with a very soulful approach – a style that's a bit like Mario Biondi, especially given Balducci's use of English throughout, and his raspy vocals – yet more 60s soul in the end, with a unified aesthetic that really holds strong over the course of the album. Players include Jukka Eskola on trumpet, Timo Lassy on tenor, Gaetano Partipilo on alto, and Luca Mannuzta on Fender Rhodes and piano – and titles include "Hurt So Bad", "Spooky", "Within Myself", "Big City", "I Just Dropped In", "Time Will Come", and "The Meaning Of Love".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A killer set from Finnish trumpet genius Jukka Eskola – a bossa-styled outing with a sweet 60s groove – but one that's quite different from his earlier hardbop recordings! The "orquesta" in the group is mostly just a string quartet – but they shade in spaces wonderfully ... LP, Vinyl record album

Schema (Italy), 2005. New Copy 2LP
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!

Fania, 2013. New Copy 2 LPs Gatefold
Louie Vega on Fania Records – a long-overdue match that really makes for some amazing sounds on this set!

Space (180 gram vinyl)
Favorite (France), 2013. New Copy
One of the coolest projects so far from Bruno "Patchworks" Hovart – a set that's put together as a tribute to all the spacey electronic 70s grooves from artists like Patrick Adams, Alain Goraguer, or Jean Pierre Massiera!

Ninja Tune/Tru Thoughts (UK), 2001. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue)
Simon Green serves up some heavy beats, spacious soundscapes, and bits of tribal/exotica touches – slow, nice and slow, in a way that most downtempo artists these days seem to be forgetting. With that Kruder & Dorfmeister kind of "Hey, should this be on 45?" sort of approach ... LP, Vinyl record album

Schema (Italy), 2013. New Copy
A great debut from an ultra-jazzy combo from the Finnish scene – one with the same sort of fire and crackle as the best groups on the Ricky Tick label! The tracks have a blend of 60s hardbop with some later soulful elements – and leader Kari Setala's got a mighty great touch on both ... LP, Vinyl record album
