The Five Corners Quintet : Trading Eights

The very first single and Ricky-Tick Records release out of 2003. Already a modern dancefloor jazz classic. Both tracks on the 10 inch vinyl feature a Finnish tenor sax heavyweight, Mr. Eero Koivistoinen. The Five Corners Quintet from Helsinki took the international dancefloor jazz scene by a storm. “Chasin’ the Jazz Gone By”, their debut for Ricky-Tick Records, a label that was initially conceived of as a vehicle for releasing the very first TFCQ vinyl single, proved out to be both an artistic and a commercial success story. For once and for all, the album proved that it is possible to look back while moving forward.
