Scene 1 – A young woman is walking beneath the sea. She’s alone, only the white sand and a crystal blue water. It’s late in the afternoon and the sun is glancin’ over her shoulders while a soft bossa nova fills the air.
Scene 2 – He’s drivin’ fast, there’s only a short time left and a man to chase. The black spider screams at the beat of a big band 5/4 jazz theme.
Scene 3 – It’s night in the park and every shadow tells a mystery. A far eastern sound.
is pulled by a psychedelic beat. What’s the next move…?
Whose is this soundtrack? Are we in Italy and when?
It’s the year 2000 and the avant-garde of the new jazz pop Italian scene is called JET SOUNDS.
The debut album from Nicola Conte tells a cinematic story, a sound for moderns.
It includes all the successful singles like Bossa Per Due, Arabesque, Forma 2000, Missione A Bombay plus a handful of new tunes like Dossier Omega and Il Cerchio Rosso. It features nearly 20 different musicians and moreover the visionary, sophisticated appeal of Nicola with a sound that is already his trademark and the one of Schema, the Italian label which is gaining recognition worldwide.
