The Five Corners Quintet Chasin‘ The Jazz Gone By
- Words: Rob Geary
- Label: Milan
For ears raised on breakbeat-fractured future jazz, ‘60s jazz can seem staid, but those LPs represent a burning quest for musical perfection through improvisation and composition. That fire burns in Helsinki‘s Five Corners Quintet, who bop so hard you can almost hear starched white collars being popped and square-rimmed glasses fogging up behind the studio window. Whether it‘s vibes, sax or legendary hard-bop hipster vocalist Mark Murphy (voicing three tunes, belying his 70-plus years!) taking the lead, these youngsters revive classic soul/Latin fusion with a passion that will make you think jazz‘s greatest era never ended.
