Five Corners

Russian bassist/composer Dmitri Kolesnik is a promising talent who is well-versed in both hard bop and post-bop. His second CD as a leader reunites him with the musicians on his first CD (tenor saxophonist Eric Alexander, trumpeter/flugelhornist Alex Sipiagin, pianist Andrei Kondakov and drummer Lenny White), while adding trumpeter/flugehornist Jim Rotondi, a frequent collaborator with Alexander on various New York sessions. His jaunty, somewhat jagged "In Monk's Mood" salutes Thelonious Monk and is full of great solos by the band. "Bitter Chocolate" is lush ballad with a bittersweet air, highlighted by Kondakov's poignant introduction and the heartfelt unison line of Sipiagin (on flugelhorn) and Alexander, with the leader taking a powerful chorus as well. Kondakov contributed two originals, including the driving, turbulent "Song for Kenny," in honor of the late pianist Kenny Kirkland and "Goodbye," a snappy, infectious post-bop vehicle. It's clear that a good time was had by everyone in the studio and a similar experience awaits the listener.
