The Chill

This is prime "cool-guy" music, and if you're like me, you're gonna love it. Mellow, with an exotic sexy caribbean jazz vibe. Very sweet acid jazz that sounds like it could be from about 45 years ago. If ya like listening to interesting music, and you want something that's probably pretty different from your collection (it was different from mine and I love bands like UFO, Theivery, Gilles Peterson, Bebel, african, jazz, . . .basically, the exotic jive!). Dig it!

Love it!

I've always been a big Nicola Conte fan, and was thrilled to see a new album from him. This is different from his earlier ones in that there's nothing electronic or anything - it's just straight up latin jazz. I love it! Really relaxing and smooth. Excellent songwriting. I agree with the other poster who said it sounds like it could be 45 years just has a really nice "classic" sound to it. I keep listening from beginning to end over and over again...highly recommended!

EDIT: Okay, so I know I already reviewed this album back in August, but I just wanted to add...I think I've listened to "Love In" just about every single day since then. I actually like it MORE the more I listen to it - I never, ever get tired of listening to it. It's incredible. The whole album is that way, but especially that one tune in particular...seriously, just get this album now :-)

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...
