Review: Fresh from curating the latest Viagem Volume 4 bossa and samba opus, Conte returns with his fifth artist album. Recruiting a crack troupe of vocalists and musicians, there's a great sense of consistency throughout as the likes of Marvin Parks, Heidi Vogel and Bridgette Amofah appear regularly, there's a slick steadiness that other collaborative albums lack. Naturally with Conte, the main constancy is undiluted jazz in all its many sexy shapes and styles: the smoky naked pianos and trumpets of "Ahmad's Blues", the finger-clicking big band swing of "Goddess Of The Sea", the emphatic bluesy jazzy funk of "Ode To Billie Joe", the summery, sun-splashed samba swing of "Sandalia Dela"... The list goes on. Beautiful, soulful and timeless.

Soul
  1. Free Souls (feat Bridgette Amofah)
  2. Shades Of Joy (feat Marvin Parks)
Review: Storied Latin-jazz artist, composer, producer, and DJ Nicola Conte lays down a marker for his upcoming fifth studio album Free Souls with this delightful 7" of the same name. Brandishing two gens from the album, Conte's channelling soul jazz at it's purest on the title track, with a rhythm and blues arrangement that provides the perfect backing for Bridgette Amofah's gliding vocal delivery. On the B Side, "Shades Of Joy" is equally as memorable with Marvin Parks' soft croon enveloped in the smooth double bass and horn section. On the basis of this, the forthcoming album should be one of Conte's finest yet!

Broken Beat/Nu Jazz
  1. People Need People (4:20)
  2. The Higher Love (4:14)
Review: Nicola Conte and Gianluca Petrella's recent album, People Need People, was one of the warmest, soulful ad most accessible sets of the year, with the experienced Italian duo combining authentic jazz instrumentation and percussion with contemporary deep house and broken beat grooves. This superb seven0=-inch single showcases two of the album's undoubted gems: the impeccable deep house soul of 'People Need People' - a wonderfully sun-soaked affair in which Petrella's impassioned vocals and vibraphone solos stretch out across a tactile groove - and the downtempo, spoken word-laden hip-hop/jazz fusion of 'The Higher Love'. In a word: essential.

  13. Dave Pike Set - "Raga Jeeva Swara" (2:50)
Review: As part of their ongoing 50th birthday celebrations, German jazz label MPS asked Italian musician and crate digger Nicola Conte to trawl through their archives for spiritual gold. The result is "Cosmic Forest", an eye-opening set of largely obscure and little known tracks originally recorded between 1965 and 75. There is much "straight-up" spiritual jazz to enjoy (Nathan Davis' "Evolution" being a prime example), but it's the cuts that draw on a wider palette of influences that really stand out. Check, for example, the Middle Eastern flourishes of George Gruntz's "Djerbi", the hippy-ish vocal bliss of The Third Wave's "Maiden Voyage", the meditative jazz raga that is "Yaad" by Motihar Trio, Schweizer Trio, Schoof & Wilen, and the tropical drums of "El Babaku" by El Babaku.
