“Catch A Corner”, by “Cinque” (pronounced “Cheen-kwe”) features a who’s who of jazz and R&B/funk musicians – Steve Gadd on drums, Joey DeFrancesco on Hammond B3 organ, Peter Cardinali on bass, Robi Botos on piano and Fender Rhodes, and Johnny Johnson on tenor, alto, soprano and baritone saxes. The groups’ first release spans across a wide musical landscape – from smoking B3 trio jazz, to down and dirty funk and R&B.

“The appeal of Catch A Corner lies in the abilities of these five musicians to find a freshness in some very basic and familiar- sounding material. They are hugely successful in that regard; the playing here is excellent and inspired throughout. While some of the music may be a bit too mellow and easygoing for some, those who enjoy slinky ’70s jazz-funk and ’60s organ jazz will find Catch A Corner a veritable treasure trove.”
