Gerardo FrisinaBlue Latin ... LP
Schema (Italy), 2017. New Copy ... $18.99
A great small combo set from percussionist Gerardo Frisina – a set that feels as if it's got some programming in the rhythms, a bit like some of his earlier singles – but which also features a fair bit of live jazz instrumentation too! The album's got a sound that really fits the color of the title – tunes that are upbeat, but nicely chromatic too – thanks to some excellent piano lines, balanced alongside trumpet, tenor, and flute – plus some warm acoustic basslines, and a bit of Fender Rhodes as well! As always with Frisina, even when the rhythms are programmed, they're never too stiff – as the man draws more inspiration from classic Latin sounds than most of his producer contemporaries, and really knows how to make things sound great. Titles include "Mulata", "Blue Latin", "Incanto", "Baracoa", "Naquela Base", and "Olympia (part 2)". LP, Vinyl record album

Gerardo FrisinaModern Latin Jazz ... CD
Schema (Italy), 2017. New Copy 2CD ... $22.99
The title's a great one here – as Gerardo Frisina has been one of the few contemporary artists trying to find a fresh voice for Latin Jazz – which he does beautifully by blending classic albums and a more current sense of club! The 2CD package brings together unreleased material with tracks from many of Frisina's vinyl-only releases – making for the CD debut of most tracks here, and the first appearance of a few others! All the numbers share that wonderful sensibility that Gerardo's had in his music for years – a way of taking acoustic elements and reworking them through modern rhythm programs – then topping them anew with fresh acoustic elements that often include a fair bit of jazz-based instrumentation! Almost all the work here is instrumental – with some fantastic percussion at the core, lots of warm Fender Rhodes – and other contributions on tenor, trumpet, flute, guitar, and vibes. Unreleased tracks include "Oyela", "Get On Up", "Uma Danca", and "Delirium" – and other titles include "Superstrut", "Passion Dance", "Voice Of The Jungle", "Samba Skindim", "Donke De", "African Nite Life", "Mulata", "Blue Latin", "Incanto", "The Obsession", "Tin Tin Deo", "Moderno Primitivo", "Space In Time (new version)", "African Seeds (rework)", and "Baracoa".

Zalla (Piero Umiliani)Produzione (orig, Gerardo Frisina rework)/Attivita (Gerardo Frisina rework) ... 12-inch
Schema (Italy), 1970. New Copy (pic cover)... $8.99
A very cool cut from sound library genius Piero Umiliani – served up here in both the original version, and a Gerardo Frisina rework! The original tune has this cool percolating electric vibe that really fits the title – percussion and electronics bubbling together beautifully! On the rework, Gerardo Frisina picks the pace up a bit more, and smoothes down some of the edges – creating a groove that has all the captivating spirit of the original, but even more of a groove. "Attivita" is maybe a bit more spacious, but still nicely groovy – and gets some great contemporary touches from Frisina! 12-inch, Vinyl record

VariousMetti Una Bossa A Cena Vol 2 ... LP
Schema (Italy), 1960s/1970s. Near Mint- 2LP ... $19.99
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.

✨✧ VariousImpulsive – Revolutionary Jazz Reworked ... LP
Impulse, 2005. Used 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing reworking of the Impulse Records groove – and a fitting tribute to one of the hippest jazz labels ever! The set's got a depth and brilliance that goes far beyond all other remix projects of its type – with none of the easy tricks of the Verve Remix project, or the off-pace dancefloor styles of the Motown one. Instead, the producers here really stay in the range of the label's original soulful and spiritual approach to jazz – in a way that draws from the older work for inspiration, but remakes it with a sound that's often quite respectful of the original! One of the key factors of the set is the strength of the remixers – as most here have a clearly demonstrated love and understanding of the original work, and weren't just introduced to the records in the studio – so they're clearly working out of love and respect, and not just a quickie remix paycheck. Titles include "A Helluva Town (Sa Ra Go rmx)" by George Russell, "Mizrab (Prefuse 73 remix)" by Gabor Szabo, "Swing Low Sweet Cadillac (Gerardo Frisina rmx)" by Dizzy Gillespie, "At Night (Ravi Coltrane w/Julie Patton)" by John Coltrane, "Stolen Moments (Teflon Tel-Aviv rmx)" by Oliver Nelson, "Bamboo Flute Blues (Kid Koala rmx)" by Yusef Lateef, "Astral Traveling (Boozoo Bajou rmx)" by Pharoah Sanders, and "Attica Blues (Chief Xcel rmx)".
