The Five Corners Quintet in Manchester

Manchesters Band On The Wall has recently been re-opened after a full refurbishment. It has long been a venue with a history of showcasing great jazz/soul/funk and world music artists and I chuffed to bits it has once again put itself back on the map. Artist selection for our genre of music is overseen by none other than JazzFM`s Mike Chadwick. Along with other artists he has played a blinder for the North West UK and booked one of Europe`s premier jazz groups and giants of dance floor jazz - The Five Corners Quintet from Helsinki. They will be appearing on Wednesday October 14th at an incredable ticket price of £12.50. Big up to Mike for this. These guys are not to be missed. The quality of the individuals in the group are exceptional. Teppo Mäkynen (drums/bandleader), Timo Lassy (sax), Jukka Eskola (trumpet), Mikael Jakobsson (piano), and Antti Lötjönen (double bass). Lassy & Esckola are individual artists in their own right. This is an amazing oportunity to see this group. My tickets booked.
