Album Review

Italian producer and label-boss Nicola Conte had zero problems drafting a lineup of producers for the remix album following on from his debut Jet Sounds (or Bossa per Due, in its American reissue). Stateside financiers Thievery Corporation balance the bossa with a little hip-hop for their redo of his breakout "Bossa per Due," while Japan's Kyoto Jazz Massive delivers with a sprightful post-production of "The In Samba" and Koop re-imagine "Fuoco Fatuo" as a sweaty lounge workout. Others contributing creative covers include Finland's Nuspirit Helsinki and Bavarian favorites Les Gammas, but Conte also adds a trio of bracing new tracks to satisfy fans.

Customer Reviews


This entire cd is jazz uber-swank. It is the ultimate hipster music. The vision I get in my mind from "Jet Sounds": Cool-a** people jetting in from Morocco, walking away from the plane towards their smooth Benz, spontaneously breaking into a retro-50's style dance. Then continuing on as if nothing happened. And all the time you stand still, afraid to miss a thing, drooling over the scene playing in front of you. Seriously, I've listened to this cd for about 5yrs & it is amazing.

Why haven't you bought this yet?

Somehow we have heard all of these songs before, yet they are unique. They must borrow from somewhere intrinsically; deep in our collective souls. Buying this is equivalent to one hour of Soma.

Nicola's "First"

Nicola's gone far, far away from this sound. But at the time, what a treat. This is Italian bossa at it's finest with a heavy Brazilian influence with sampling and a lot of other touches. Pure jet-set, lounge themed soundtrack tunes. Loads of samples and a real nostalgic 60's vibe to the music make this one a classic for just about any decade. Check it out! But be warned - a lot of Nicola's music is much different from this and far more jazz based. If you do like this though, check out what Thievery was doing at around this time as well as others that were into the lounge scene. And you'd probably like a lot of other Schema artists like Rosalia De Souza, Gerardo Frisina, Soulstance, S-Tone Inc. and.. many others. :)


Born: Bari, Italy

Genre: Jazz

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Italian DJ/producer Nicola Conte's loungey brand of acid jazz relies extensively on bossa nova, but is also heavily influenced by the swinging soundtracks of Italian films in the '60s and '70s, plus touches of ethnic music and easy listening kitsch reminiscent of Japan's Pizzicato Five. Part of the loose-knit Fez collective of artsy acid jazz revivalists centered in the Italian town of Bari, Conte was a classically trained musician who instead moved into production and DJing, working with artists...
