Thepowerful all-star quintet Opus 5 returns with Pentasonic, the follow-upto their muscular 2011 debut Introducing Opus 5. Its a cant-misslineup with tenor saxophonist Seamus Blake and trumpeter Alex Sipiaginin the front line, David Kikoski doubling on piano and Fender Rhodes,Boris Kozlov on bass, and Donald Edwards on drums. Once again Opus 5puts original music by the bands members in the forefront, but thechoice arrangements of Charlie Parkers seldom-heard Charlies Wig andFreddie Hubbards classic Red Clay bring unique and unexpected angles tothe session. Moody and ethereal, rhythmically skewed, always furiouslyburning, this is music that lives up to the name of everyone involved.
