Product Description

The first in a series of incredibly rare albums that British saxophone great Don Rendell released in the 60s. This album is a tour-de-force of hard bop that stands up to anything recorded in the States at the same time, and features, in the horn-led front line a young Graham Bond on alto saxophone making his debut appearance. This release comes about in the slipstream of a huge upsurge in interest in this period of British jazz. The huge success of Gilles Peterson’s "Impressed" series may have sparked this, and some of their key moments were based around the brilliance of Rendell’s work with Ian Carr in a later quintet. This spotlight on Rendell’s work has led to the reissue of many of his Columbia dates. This is the first time that this album has ever been re-issued anywhere in the world and is released utilising its original artwork.

The name Don Rendell is not likely to stir any memory of too many reader's here at Uppers or too many other places for that matter.
Indeed his name and reputation are only know to that small tightly knit clan of British jazz aficionados and an even smaller sect of fans following work of the late great British blues/r&b pioneer Graham Bond. Best known for his work on a Hammond with The Graham Bond Organization, Bond is less known for his humble beginnings as a youthful, portly alto saxophonist. It is here with The New Don Rendell Quintet that his humble beginnings saw their onset. Long a collector's item , mint copies of this original 1961 Jazzland records LP "Roarin'" spring anywhere from 100 pounds on up. Luckily with it's recent CD reissue you needn't trouble yourself with such hefty purchases!
Led by tenor sax man and veteran Brit jazz scene staple Don Rendell (who had his start playing with the legendary Johnny Dankworth), the quintet's line up on this LP included pianist John Burch (who would later go on to compose a few amazing B-side's for Georgie Fame such as "Preach And Teach" and "Telegram"), Graham Bond on alto sax, bassist Tony Archer and drummer Phil Kinorra (the latter two both fresh from a stint of backing Jackie McClean in the U.K.).
The Quintet's hard bop leanings are initially offset by some squeally horn work on the opener, a Bond composition titled "Bring Back The Burch", but things are easily remedied by track two, a Burch original titled "Manumission". There are a fair selection of originals which share the space with covers such as Thelonious Monk's "Blue Monk" and my favorite of the disc, "Jeannine" (written by Duke Pearson and made famous by Donald Byrd among others).

Does exactly what it says on the can. One of the best British Modern Jazz records ever. Blistering solos over a phenomenal rhythm section in particular a 20 year old Phil Kinorra. Gives as much pleasure as when I first heard it all those Pre-Beatles years ago.
Highly recommended.
PS Graham Bond should have stuck to Jazz.

Don Rendell was one of the pioneers of British modern jazz.This recordings were unavailable and never previously been reissued on cd.The music on the album is of a hard bop,improvisational,latinesque rhythms,in fact-intersting jazz standard pieces.On this rare album we can hear officially first time young Graham Bond on alto sax and and Phil Kinorra(Philamore Lincoln)-one of his numerous pseudonyms...on drums!The rest of the quintet was Tony Archer-bass and John Burch-piano.The tracks: 1.Bring back the burch(BOND),2.Manumission(BURCH),3.Blue Monk(MONK),4.Jeannine(DUKE PEARSON),5.You loomed out of Loch Ness(RENDELL),6.So what(MILES),7.The Haunt(BURCH).Recommended after midnight!

He's still playing well, fronting a band old enough to be his grandchildren, even though he's no longer "doing green bananas"·
