session #096 – Nicola Conte (Nepetalakton series)
MAMA JAZ reaches their high ending note for 2019 and the only jazz month festival of the southern hemisphere celebrates the International Jazz Day with a very special session, and our main feature of the Nepetalakton Series; an hour-long mix of mystical jazz, with a dose of tribal and spiritual 70’s vibe, from the multi-versed virtuoso, producer, composer, bandleader and DJ Nicola Conte.
Mr Conte currently leads the Spiritual Galaxy Band and recently released his jazz-infused Free Your Mind EP on Schema. To add, his enormous discography ranges on a 20-year span of music releases, housed on labels such as Far Our Recordings, Schema Records, MPS, Universal Music and Blue Note.
For this session, recorded at a studio in Bari, Mr Conte proposes carefully handpicked tracks, all taken from original issues vinyl albums, and narrates an hour-long story about the musical atmosphere he currently dwells in.
