6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By J. D. Naylor TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 22 Oct 2005
Format: Audio CD
This album is a breath of fresh air to modern popular jazz.It has a contemporary feel to it with some lively danceable beats but retains the essence of many of the Blue Note Soul Jazz sessions of the late fifties and sixties by the likes of Lee Morgan,Horace Silver,Art blakey,Stanley Turrentine etc.
Five tracks contain vocals which are quite mellow and laid back which fit in well with music of this kind.The instrumental tracks all have some enjoyable solos from trumpet,saxes and keyboards but the emphasis really is on the grooves and many of them have a familiar feel as though you have heard them before somewhere but can't quite recall exactly where.
There is just about enough to keep the jazz pureists happy but fans of jazz,soul and dance music should enjoy this album.It's the sort of thing that i could well imagine being re-mixed and appearing in clubs and dancefloors up and down the country in years to come.
All in all a highly enjoyable and undemanding listen.

This is a superb album of,as the title suggests,jazz of yesteryear but with a contemporary feel.Much of it has that similar sound and feel to some of the many Blue Note soul jazz sessions of the sixties and early seventies i.e Horace Silver, Jimmy Smith,Stanley Turrentine,Lee morgan and a touch of the Modern jazz quartet.The tracks are a varied mixture of soul jazz,swing,bop and some quite funky danceable numbers.Five of the tracks contain some excellent and quite laid back vocals and there are solos from keyboards,saxes, vibes and trumpet.
All in all this is a superb selection of jazz that has both a contemporary feel but with a strong influence from "jazz gone by".This is pleasent and undemanding stuff which should appeal to a much wider audience than the hard core jazz fans.

Accessible as the music of today. 10 Mar 2007
By jimmy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Five Corners Quintet is the 50/60s modern jazz love child of Toumas Kallio and Ricky-Tick Records manager Antti Eerikäinen with a reputation for producing dance-floor-friendly jazz.

Whilst we've been catching up with other Finnish exports (Timo Lassy, Dalindèo, Hot As Hel), FCQ are undoubtedly the coolest.

Originally, it was envisaged the project would release the odd single but the reaction to the first 10" releases, "The Devil Kicks", "Three Corners" and their signature tune "Trading Eights" was so positive, there was no doubt FCQ were going to go onto bigger and better.

In addition to the above-mentioned instrumentals, to get Mark Murphy to appearing on this album is a coup. They recreate the title track to his 1959 album "This Could Be The Start Of Something" (blimey, first Paul Anka and now jazz-swings!) along with the jazz-cat poetry of 'Jamming (With Mr. Hoagland) he transports us to the cool of the New York jazz scene of half a century ago.

Tuomas wanted 'an inspiring example' of how dance floor-friendly meets the musical craftsmanship of the past and at the same time, a polished contemporary production that is as easily accessible as the music of today.

Fine examples are the tracks the jazz dancers should check out, "Lighthouse", "Straight Up" and "Three Corners".

All the musicians are brilliant and all the usual suspects are present, Teppo Mäkynen, Timo Lassy (Flute and Saxophones), Eero Koivistoinen (Tenor Saxophone), Jukka Eskola (Trumpet, Flugelhorn) and the super vibraphone of Severi Pyysalo.

Also, if you're into album covers featuring Finnish architecture, the photography and artwork of Eero Troberg, Junani Lassander and Antti Eerikäinen is on a par with the musicianship inside the jacket.

So no samplers, DJs or other digital wizardry, FCQ are truly analogically authentic.

Modern take on the golden age of Jazz 30 Sep 2005
By Markus Lautala - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Five Corners Quintet is a Helsinki-based postmodern jazz outfit influenced by early sixties straight ahead and latin jazz. Led by producer Tuomas Kallio the Five Corners Quintet is a new extension of the highly acclaimed Nuspirit Helsinki collective.

The Five Corners Quintet has made an fabulous first album featuring Mark Murphy and Okou. The quintet members are the top players from Finland, including drummer Teppo Mäkynen who has been voted the best drummer in Finland for several years. I have listened this record so many times , that I lost count. I wasn't much into Jazz before, but after this album I found an keen interest. I also went to see them live at Flow '05 festival where the atmosphere was more alike rave than jazz and crowd demanded several encores. This album is worth every cent!

where in the world have these guys been?!! 31 Jan 2011
By B. Swanson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I first heard this band back in November, after Thanksgiving this past year on one of the Alternative stations here. I thought it was Horace Silver( another GREAT Jazz muscian and band). I called the DJ two times to see who they were. This is the band she said. I went here on Amazon and downloaded 3 songs- Three Corners, Straight Up, and Taxi Driver.
Really, I can't get these songs out of my head, and neither will you. Great rythum section,love the brass section.
Everything in this band is tight. You have to take a listen to them!!

Accessible - What jazz needs! 20 Jan 2010
By Ben - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The five corners quintet is what jazz needs. This music is supremely catchy, danceable, toe-tapping music. However, it is also traditional jazz in the tradition of all the jazz greats back to the fifties. The five corners quintet steps up the level of jazz to appeal to those who might have gotten lost along the path of modern catchy music but who hope to find their way back to real art. Give it a try, you'll love it!
