The Don Rendell-Ian Carr Quintet – Shades Of Blue LP

Ridiculously rare 1965 UK 8-track mono vinyl LP on the blue & black Columbia label, housed in a gorgeous front laminated flipback picture sleeve with 'emitex' inner. One of the hardest to find records in the Lansdowne series & also one of the best, this was the accomplished debut by Britain's finest jazz group of the sixties, the Don Rendell-Ian Carr Quintet. Not nearly celebrated enough, Rendell & Carr were Britain's answer to Miles & Coltrane. With beautiful, introspective modal numbers & a fine backing group consisting of Colin Purbrook (piano), Dave Green (bass) & Trevor Tomkin (drums), this is a firm winner through & through & comes highly recommended. Especially in such superb shape as this!
