Editorial Reviews

An empathetic power of five is at work in the collaborative project known as Opus 5, working in the long shadow of the great vintage quintets, a la Blakey and pre-electric Miles Davis. On the front line, tenor saxophonist Seamus Blake and rising star trumpeter Alex Sipiagin - a Russian in NYC - are bolstered by pianist David Kikoski, drummer Donald Edwards and another bold Russian emigre, bassist Boris Kozlov. In the song set are compositions by band members, George Cables' Think of Me, Braziliana by Toninho Horta, and the reborn Russian folk tune Sokol honoring the Russian roots within the band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five Stellar Talents combine & the Sparks Fly! March 25, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Introducing Opus 5 the debut album from an all star quintet made up of Criss Cross jazz recording artists is a swinging challenging set of originals composed by various band members & tunes from the post bop cannon as well as a traditional Russian folk song recast in post bop.

On tenor sax is Seamus Blake a veteran of the NYC jazz scene who's been making records with Criss Cross from the start of his career with The Call in the early 90s. Since then Seamus has recorded several more albums as a leader most for the Criss Cross Label such as Bellwether and is a melodic saxophonist that tends to favor motifs & theme variation improv with some Rollins like humor in his playing.

On trumpet one of my personal favorites Alex Sipiagin. Sipiangin is a Russian native who immigrated to NYC in the early 1990s, since he's been on the scene he's been playing as a lead trumpet soloist in the Mingus Big Band a position he holds still today. He's also been legendary bassist/composer Dave Holland's go to guy when he needs brass playing in Holland's big band on Overtime & What Goes Around. He's recorded ten or more albums as a leader for Criss Cross his latest
