good rec !! both sides to play, will drop them asap in my gigs around the glob......

DUSTY GROOVE (the best internet record shop)
The genius of Jerome Richardson -- remixed! Richardson's funky flute and searing tenor work have appeared on some of our favorite jazz groove classics -- both European and American -- and here, two of his tunes are made by Nicola Conte and Panoptikum! Conte uses a host of extra musicians -- vibes, piano, alto, and vocals -- to expand Richardson's "Way In Blues" with an incredibly groovy and snapping sort of sound. Schema jazz meets the classic MPS groove -- with incredible results! Panoptikum go for a more modern approach with "Minor Flute" -- snapping the beats a bit more, but still allowing plenty of space for Richardson's wonderful work on flute!

RICHARD E (Further Out Recordings / Solar Apple Quarkttete)
A hot one from the ever interesting Cosmic Sounds.  Another must-have, sample-free rework by Nicola Conte of 'Way In Blues', and a funky-fusion non-sampled version of 'Minor Flute' by 2 thirds of Les Gammas as Panoptikum.

NIGEL PRANKSTERS (3hedz)
special 12" this.Since the yam Who /Blackbeard thang took off , the term Rework has been bounded about a lot and  sometimes without justification .This release can justifiably call itself  so, as Bossa king Conte and two thirds of the  Les Gammas outfit throw away the samplers and play this shit from scratch, in a huge gesture to these rare tracks (1960 Belgrade originally).The Champaigne kings mix is a full on band ting,done with his inimitable ear for detail.Pantoptikum do funky fusion with da phat beats and Mark franck playing every instrument under the sun.Wicked!!!!!

TIBOR MOZSIK and GABOR VALYI (Keyser & Shuriken)
A: Great Nicola Conte production (as always), good to have it on a proper 12” at last!
B: Uncle Tom W. and Mark Franck provided another superb funky rework from deepest Bayern. Gut gemacht! (keyser)

MR. BATOO for jazzbrake
Projet de remixes sur Jerome Richardson, un jazzman made in US maîtrisant avec brio le sax', la flûte et la clarinette sort son premier album en 1958 "Midnight Oil" puis trois autres qui marcheront plutôt bien. Il a aussi collaboré avec Lionel Hampton. Zeljko Kerleta ancien architecte à Belgrade décide de changer d'air et s'installe à Londres. C’est alors qu'il décide de produire sa propre musique qu'il introduisait d'ailleurs dans ses travaux. Fan des 60's et des 70's et collectionneur de "sons" latin/jazz/afro il commence à se faire un p'tite place dans le milieu des djs, longtemps inspiré par ; entre autre ; Gilles Peterson, il se dit qu'il est temps pour lui de lancer son propre label qu'il nomme "Cosmic Sounds" suite a une émission de radio émetant en Yougoslavie qu'il avait mis en place. Nous voici donc aujourd'hui avec une des récentes sorties sur ce label. On ne le présente plus, Nicola Conte pose son "son" et remixe en beauté et finesse "Way in Blues" avec flûte sensuelle et intrigante à la fois, piano, contrebasse et percus qui donne une force terrible à ce morceau entraîné par un sax' jusqu'au bout. Well Done mister Conte ! Panoptikum révèle "Minor Flute" beaucoup plus axé electro, piano (surtout sur la fin du morceau...magnifique et efficace), flûte et petits beats sympathiques font de ce morceau un titre accrocheur, rythmé et plein de fraîcheur.

GÜRAY UYSAL (Groove Magazin) aka Turku Loko
Reworked in this case means a completely new recording, without any use of samples from the original. And who could do this better within the Nu-Jazz mafia than the boss of Bossa Nicola Conte? Our man in Bari swings like an original master from the 60s. His “Big Band” is discreetly orchestrated and conducted with elegance. In contrast, Panoptikum (2/3 from Las Gammas) comes across as modern and powerful with a “Minor Flute” that at times might even strike you as oriental. Cosmic Sounds times two for the jazz floor.
