The Latin Kick – with a jazzy groove! Gerardo Frisina's long been one of our favorite talents on the international groove underground, and like his labelmate and sometime musical partner Nicola Conte, he's got a way of crafting tracks that are awash in classic jazz touches. Frisina himself is the producer, arranger, and composer of the album – and brings together acoustic jazz players with warmer beats, all in service of a groove that sparkles with all the best Schema Records touches, but also takes the label's sound to a whole new level! The Frisina heard here is bolder and more ambitious than before – and like Nicola Conte on recent sides, he's stepping past simple Latin-flavored tracks into boldly jazzy numbers that expand upon his ideas with a range of colors, tones, and rhythms. Easily one of the best full-length sets on Schema to date – and that's saying a lot – with titles that include "Senor Rico", "Jazz Ally", "The 7th Day", "Batucafro", "Cortante", "Bite The Nite", "Gosto De Que E Bom", and "Hush". © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
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.
We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.
When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.
All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
