Latin Kick

LP (Item 666633) Schema (Italy), 2005 — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP
Also available
Gerardo Frisina — Latin Kick ... CD 11.99

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".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.
