Gerardo FrisinaOlympia EP ... 12-inch
Schema (Italy), 2015. New Copy (pic cover)... $14.99 19.99
A special vinyl-only release from Latin beatmeister Gerardo Frisina – a sweet little set that almost gets back to the basics of his early work on Schema Records! The set features five earthy groovers – all a blend of live percussion, vibes, piano, and even a bit of tenor, trumpet, and flute – all used in spare ways that are really focused on the rhythms, but never in a stiff sort of dancefloor style! Instead, Frisina keeps things in the warm territory we've always loved in his music – with lots of jazzy flourishes over the top of grooves inspired by classic Afro-Cuban modes, but updated with a 21st Century spirit. Titles include "Olympia", "Tin Tin Deo", "The Obsession", "East Breeze", and "Talking Sticks". 12-inch, Vinyl record

Gerardo Frisina Presents Liviana FerriYe Maya E/Confiance A La Musique ... 12-inch
Schema (Italy), 2015. New Copy (pic cover)... $12.99
Gerardo Frisina works here with a great female singer – the lovely Liviana Ferri, who brings in a much deeper vibe than usual to his music! Part of that quality also comes from the Cubafro group, who work with Ferri and bring in plenty of raw percussion – all directed by Frisina's songwriting and percussion, but in a way that's maybe more classically-styled Latin than some of his own music. The group's also got some wonderfully heavy acoustic bass on the leadoff cut – plus trumpet lines and a bit of flute too – on the titles "Ye Maya E", "Confiance A La Musique", and "Ye Maya E (Ye Maya)". 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Gerardo FrisinaJoin The Dance ... LP
Schema (Italy), 2010. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
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".

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.

VariousImpulsive – Revolutionary Jazz Reworked ... LP
Impulse, 2005. Near Mint- 2LP ... $14.99
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)".

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. LP, Vinyl record album
