Panorama – Nu Europa Phusion

CD (Item 970726) Perfect Toy (Germany), 2004 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock



The Berlin wall's been down for over a decade, but it's taken years for the western club scene to finally notice the great grooves coming out of the Eastern Block scene! For years now, artists in nations formerly locked off from more familiar European circuits have been dabbling in styles that not only share some of the best styles of work by artists like those on the Compost and Schema labels, but which also bear some unique traces of the strands of jazz and funk that percolated through the once-Soviet nations in the 60s and 70s. This package does a great job of pulling together the best bits from the Eastern scene – and focuses on tracks that share a warm, jazz glow – and which bubble out with a soulful finish that will certainly have us looking for more work from these artists in the future! The set features tracks from Warsaw, Lubljana, Zagreb, Budapest, and Prague – and features a number of titles exclusive to this release! Titles include "Gold" by Innocent Sorcerers, "Tinkle Bells" by Electric Brother, "It's Just A Joke" by Rough & Ready, "Happy Dayz" by Klascik, "Free Climbing" by Painkiller Septet, "Bagdance" by Yannah, "Flyin Down To Rio" by Crate Soul Brothers, "Soul Oriental" by Onbeyond, and "Drop The Bomb (ZKA4T ft DJ Tall rmx)" by The Second Whorl.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Used CD Grade

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.

Perfect Toy (Germany), 2009. Used
An album that's every bit as hip as you'd expect from its Sam Rivers-inspired cover image – a beautiful tribute to the modal jazz scene of the 60s, particularly the work of John Coltrane and some of his followers on Impulse Records! Apart from a cover of "Naima", though, the set's ... CD

A rich document of the growth in the Italian jazz scene in recent years – a great leap forward not just for individual musicians, but also for the Schema label as well! Schema first began in the 90s with a relatively programmed approach to jazz – a style that loved the classics, but ... CD

A great take on recent work from France – one that focuses on tracks that have a quirky and retro approach to the groove, quite different in most places from the more famous house and techno coming out of Paris! The work here is very much in the spirit of the 60s mod Euro sound of the ... CD

The second full length offering from Nitin Sawhney, with a much smoother sound starting out with a more stripped down approach, before giving in to some heavier beat oriented material.
