BoosterLoop In Release ... CD
Blue Note (France), 2001. Used ... $7.99
Funky French grooves from DJ Booster – and another feather in the cap of the French division of Blue Note! This track's got a sweet laidback feel – lots of heavy beats at the bottom, and plenty of real jazz soloing on trumpet, Fender Rhodes, alto, sitar, and percussion. A few of the tunes have vocals, but the real strength of the album is in its mellow funky instrumentation – handled perfectly, in the mode of early 70s work by Grant Green or Ronnie Foster, with modern touches on percussion to pick things up a bit! Titles include "Manzana", "Summer", "The Box", "You're The One", "Mario Meets Malia", "Mutation", and "Holy Cow". CD

Nicola ConteJet Sounds Revisited (US version – with slightly different tracks) ... CD
Schema/ESL, 2002. Used ... $7.99
The genius of Nicola Conte gets the remix treatment – in this wonderful new album that steps off heavily from his massive Jet Sounds set of a few years ago! If you know Nicola, he's the wunderkind behind the Schema label – and, probably more than anyone in the world right now, one of the few producer/musicians who can really handle a retro-sounding groove. Conte's steeped in classic jazz, soundtracks, and bossa nova – all of which come into play in his music – and this set has him working with a host of able talents who help to take his unique creative vision even farther than before! US version features a slightly different track list than the European one – with titles that include "Arabesque (vocal version)" done by Micatone, "Forma 2000" reformed by Les Gammas, "Tema In Hi Fi" by Nicola Conte & Gianluca Petrella, "Jet Sounds" by Nuspirit Helsinki, "Bossa Per Due" by Thievery Corporation, "Fuoco Fatuo" by Koop, "New Standards" by Nicola Conte & Gianluca Petrella, "Love Me Till Sunday" by Nicola Conte, "Dossier Omega" redone by Espen Horne, "The In Samba" done by Kyoto Jazz Massive, "Missione A Bombay" by Eddy & Dus, and "Mambo De Los Dandies" by Gerardo Frisina.
