The publication of “Jet Sounds” in October 2000 and its subsequent release on the international market represented a turning point from the initial productions by Schema and the new course taken by the label. This record was important for reveling Nicola Conte’s talent worldwide and the vitality of the constantly evolving Italian scene which Schema Records interpreted and promoted.

Now, after two years, we have “Jet Sound Revisited” and the circle is closed! In fact, this record received great public success and positive criticism was also given for its creator, Nicola Conte. This project confers great appreciation for this artist from Bari by the entire nu-jazz scene elevating both parties to a higher level. If we compare the two albums it will be clear how “Jet Sounds” was characterized by Bossa, Jazz, and psychedelic sonorities inspired by Italian soundtracks of the late 60’s while “Revisited” manifests influences of jazz of the 60’s and 70’s from all over Europe. It has a more evident use of electronics that widens the picture beyond Bossa reaching club rhythms: nu house, broken beats, nu jazz etc.

One should definitely take note of the common approach used by the various production teams when taking on the work. They have given us versions which maintain the original mood of the tracks even in the diversity of the various arrangements. The circle is now closed, and while waiting for a new chapter to be opened, there’s nothing left to do but savor the unreleased soundtrack “Love Me ‘Till Sunday”, from the RAS insurance commercial, with Sean Connery as it’s star, which is offered to us as the buttonhole of a great work of art. This work of art precedes the welcome return of Rosalia De Souza to the music scene. She’s already well known as the vocalist for Quintetto X in the album “Novo Esquema Da Bossa” and she’s about to release the new and much awaited for album “Garota Moderna”, out in September/October on Schema Records, with Nicola appearing as producer and musical director.
