Editorial Reviews

2009 two CD set of remixes from the Italian Lounge/Acid Jazz producer. The Modern Sound Of Nicola Conte - Versions In Jazz Dub is more than a simple disc of remixes, it is a work that tells, in music, the artistic way of Conte, confirming once again his great versatility. It is a record which fully represents the "cosmopolitan" sound of Nicola Conte, and it also proves the high regard from international artists that has developed over the years. 26 tracks. Schema.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long Overdue, But Well Worth the Wait December 16, 2009
Format:Audio CD
For upwards of 5 years, I've wanted this release. From contacting Schema direction, I'd always say it was the most logical thing to do. After all, Nicola Conte had a feature release where others remixed his works. Why not do it the other way around? Jazzanova made a very successful double disc release in the past so why couldn't Nicola Conte; a man who's production work is IMO second to none. Over the years h'es remixed some of the best in a variety of different styles. From underground jazz in Japan to cutting edge broken beats to South American jazz standards, Conte's found a way to add a classy touch to all of them. And finally here, we have just a glimpse of some of the highlights in this impressive 2 disc set which also includes some original works as well not found on "Rituals".

Where to start? I think the important thing to know is that both discs focus on Conte's jazz approach to remixes. For that reason, you won't see too many of his remixes from before 2002 when the focus was maybe more on soundtrack and more direct Italian bossa. That means remixes in the mold of "Love Beat" by Yoshinori Sunahara aren't there. Instead, you have his redifining of classics new and old, jazz to acid-jazz adn even his take on Disney. Like Mark Murphy's "Stolen Moments", a Gilles Peterson favourite too that I honestly never cared for. But assigning Conte to freshen it up, it's pretty good. Other fantastic remixes featured are Thunderball's cool "Elevated States", Sabrina Malheiros 'Terra de Ninguem", Povo's hoppin' "You Are" and popular numbers by Sunaga t Experience too. Meanwhile there are a plethora of original takes which feature some of Conte's favorite musicians to the Gil Scott-Herron influenced Jose James to Gianluca Petrella, Kim Sanders and the sassy Alice Ricciardi.
