(limited 10") Ricky-Tick RT030, 2009-04-24

The Five Corners Quintet and composer Kerkko Koskinen (see "Agatha", on Ricky-Tick Records RTCD06) recently got together to produce the score of "Othello", a hit Shakespeare play at the Finnish National Theatre in Helsinki. Ricky-Tick will release an exclusive 10" vinyl of selected tracks that were recorded for the play. The "Othello" ten-inch will navigate along the signposts set by the wealth of historically relevant soundtrack jazz around, materialising itself as high-octane 21st century dancefloor jazz with a distinct old school library/soundtrack flava. The release is strictly limited to 1000 copies.

Press Release :
The Five Corners Quintet and composer Kerkko Koskinen (see "Agatha", RTCD06) recently got together to produce the score of "Othello", a hit Shakespeare play at the Finnish National Theatre in Helsinki.

Historically, jazz has been featured prominently at scores and soundtracks. Some may remember releases such as "A Lift to the Scaffold" by Miles Davis, not to mention the vast pool of quality library jazz out there. The "Othello" ten-inch will navigate along these signposts, materialising itself as high-octane 21st century dancefloor jazz with a distinct old school library/soundtrack flava. The release is strictly limited to 1000 copies.
