Circus In C Minor/Urban Savage

12-inch (Item 127660) Schema (Italy), 2004 — Condition: Very Good+
(pic cover)
Out Of Stock

12-inch, Vinyl record

Incredible jazzy grooves – in the best Schema Records tradition! "Circus In C Minor" feels like an old track lifted from the MPS/Saba catalog – a modal loping groover that begins with a strong grand piano part and bass line, plus a bit of tenor sax – before leaping into a wonderful bigger band passage that's only slightly programmed and remixed! "Urban Savage" follows in similar rhythmic territory – bouncing along some wonderfully rounded bass parts that jump along with the groove – and featuring some excellent horn passages layered over the top! Dancefloor jazz at its best – and the kind of single that leaves us wishing for a full LP!  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Calle De Candela (main, vibes version)/Es Diferente
Schema (Italy), 2007. Very Good+
One of the most percussion-heavy numbers we've ever heard from Gerardo Frisina – and that's saying a lot, given his usual rootsy vibe! "Calle De Candela" features Frisina working with the Candela All Stars – a great combo with plenty of congas in the mix, as well as piano, ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Gerardo Frisina takes Toco to a very groovy place with this one – using lots of additional percussion to really transform the tune!

Gerardo Frisina

Intenso/Saeta '03
Schema (Italy), 2003. Near Mint- (pic cover)
Latin jazz jammers – both of them excellent! Gerardo Frisina is, in our book, the number 2 man at Schema (next to Nicola Conte) for coming up with classic-styled jazzy grooves – and both of these numbers support our case! "Intenso" is incredible – a modal tune that ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Schema (Italy), 2003. Very Good+ (pic cover)
The cover says "built around a chord version" – and we couldn't think of a better way to sum this one up! Skittish beats start the track – snapping snare, in an almost noir-ish mode – as one piano chord rings out, and builds slowly – adding in warm space and sound ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
