Three stars is about right for this. It IS a sampler after all (Schema records trying to promote their 2003 catalogue; with Nicola Conte, understandably, to the fore). It's mostly fast tempo latin(-ish) rhythms with either flutes or scatting continental lady-voices in the top register. The playing is generally tight, but thenagain playing slow is often the true measure of great musicianship. The dated, 'post chill-out' phasing adds to the quality of undemanding sophistication. A suitable accompaniment to a drive in a ten-year old Lambo across the Umbrian plains; but a little bland if you're nursing a second-hand Fiesta along the M52...

It's a few years old now, but this is still the best sampler I've EVER heard. Doesn't sound particularly modern, nor Italian, but every track makes you want to own absolutely everything on Schema.If you've been through everything from Astrud Gilberto to Zezé Motta and want something fresh - look no further than this. It'll just blow you away.

Jazz as it was meant you can cut a rug and yet be dazzled by incredible musicianship without the two being mutually exclusive. Good sampler some things you may like allowing you to dive that bit deeper into the lounge........
