Description

At its heart the Rendell/Carr Quintet had one of the leading British jazz musicians of the post-war era – saxophonist Rendell – whose CV included work with American big hitters such as Woody Herman and Stan Kenton. Around him he had gathered four younger, more adventurous jazzmen, all wishing to push the envelope of the music. This session captures a moment that, without any hint of sleeve note hyperbole, can rightly be called historic. That moment is the April 19th 1965 debut within the Rendell/Carr ranks of pianist Michael Garrick, a musician who was – again with no little sense of overstatement – to quite literally change the course of the group’s direction, and it can be argued with some conviction, that of the wider sound of British jazz.

The overall fidelity on this recording is excellent and pressed on 180 gram vinyl.
