Review: Alongside Schema label-mate Nicola Conte, Gerardo Frisina has been at the forefront of the Italian nu-jazz scene for the best part of two decades. In that time, he's released a string of fine albums, though this full-length excursion - his sixth in total - is Frisina's first since 2014. Like previous sets, it's rooted in jazz and the heavily percussive rhythms of South America, but also looks to dub and deep house for inspiration. While some of the album's more traditional moments are very good - see the breezy "Blue Latin" and "Naquela Base" - it's those blessed with heavy sub-bass and lashings of echo and delay (check "InCantao" and "Baracoa") that hit home hardest.

  6. Camaguey (Tumbao) (5:11)
Review: On his latest album, Italian nu-jazz hero Gerardo Frisina displays a rawer side to his electronic music style, whilst merging it with his typical Latin crossover. The Rhythmic Conversations LP comes courtesy of Milan's Schema - an imprint which he's become a stalwart of. He takes aesthetics from Cuba, South America and Africa then crosses the Atlantic Ocean: incorporating percussive and tribal elements via the dancefloor. Highlights include the colourful Afro-jazz explosion of "Camaguey", the sweltering and hypnotic raindance that is "Arawak" (featuring some of the most sublime polyrhythms we've heard in a while) plus the deep and lo-slung spiritualism of "Yeha".

Review: Gerarado Frisina has always been something of a vinyl enthusiast, meaning plenty of his releases have never made it to CD or digital download. It's these that form the basis of Modern Latin Jazz, a bespoke "best of" that gathers together tracks released at various points over his 16-year career. You get two of his best releases - this year's fantastic Latin Blue album and 2015's Olympia EP - in their entirety, plus tracks taken from rare and hard-to-find 12" singles from the dawn of the decade and long before. The two-disc set does a great job of showcasing Frisina's increasingly dub-tinged approach, mixing Latin jazz floor-fillers, percussive stompers and snaking jazz-house shufflers with more traditional bossa-jazz fare and the kind of warm, loose-limbed nu-jazz that was once found on Jazzanova albums.

Marombo (12")

Broken Beat/Nu Jazz
  1. Marombo (6:57)
  2. Marombo (part 2) (6:31)
Review: Those who've been following the nu-jazz scene since the sound's early 2000s hey-day should be familiar with Gerardo Frisina, a Schema regular whose Latin Jazz inspired releases are rarely less than superb. "Marombo" is another superb outing. The A-side original mix is as percussive as you'd expect, with tons of South American style drums and a head-cracking double bass line, but also doffs a cap to jazz-house and the echoing sounds of dub. We'd file it under "dubbed-out Latin jazz-house", which is a niche sub-genre worth embracing. Frisina layers up the percussion further on the equally trippy, club-ready flipside "Part 2" version, which gives greater prominence to the Latin vocal samples buried deep in the A-side mix.
