Change Is… what, lads? Come on, don’t leave us hanging like that. Jazzman go the whole hog with the reissue of this 1969 LP from seminal British jazzers The Don Rendell/Ian Carr Quintet. As well as full remasterings of Rendell/Carr/etc.'s post-bop expeditions, this edition of Change Is features fastidious reproductions of the original artwork and a link to an online treasure-trove of interviews with, and essays about, the group.

Don Rendell Ian Carr Quintet
Live

You may have clocked Jazzman’s recent Don Rendall/Ian Carr Quintet box set. The five-LP wonder did so well on its first run that now the label has decided to put out all of the band’s full-lengths as individual units. 1969’s Live is the only record the group cut for Lansdowne that captured them in full flow. Known largely for being one of the best British post-bop acts, cuts like ‘Voices’ also demonstrate the band’s affinity for spiritual and modal jazz. With original copies of Live going for silly money nowadays it’s a good job that the record’s been reissued. Remastered, too.

Don Rendell Ian Carr Quintet
Phase III

Phase III is - who’d have thought? - the third LP from acclaimed British jazz group The Don Rendall/Ian Carr Quintet. This 1968 set combines the sort of vivacious post-bop on which the group built their name with some of their most ambitious writing - see 13-minute epic ‘Black Marigolds’ for one. As with all of the other Rendall/Carr reissues that Jazzman have got together recently, Phase III has been remastered and restored to the highest possible quality.

Don Rendell Ian Carr Quintet
Dusk Fire

Original editions of LPs by The Don Rendall/Ian Carr Quintet go for absolute megabucks these days. If your bucks are more mini in nature then you should consider something from Jazzman’s reissue run. The group’s sophomore LP, 1966’s Dusk Fire, is a good place to start. Recorded at Denis Preston’s famed Lansdowne Studios, this set builds on the post-bop innovations of debut album Shades Of Blue by introducing some modal flavours.

Don Rendell Ian Carr Quintet
Shades of Blue

Jazzman had so much success with their recent Don Rendell/Ian Carr Quintet box set that they’ve now pushed on with a series of single-album reissues. Recorded in 1965, the group’s debut LP Shades Of Blue stands as a high-point of British jazz. This set of sparky, emotional post-bop is well worth your time.

Don Rendell / Ian Carr Quintet
The Complete Lansdowne Recordings, 1965-1969

Deluxe edition of five LPs by the Don Rendell/Ian Carr Quintet here. Jazzman wanted to get this one so much that it’s taken them two decades to sort the licensing issues. We’re glad that they did - The Complete Lansdown Recordings, 1965-1969 is full of sweet, swinging British jazz. To cop the original editions of 1965’s Shades Of Blues, Dusk Fire (1966), Phase III (1968), Change Is (1969) and Live (also ‘69) would set you back thousands, so this collection will also save you a pretty penny.

Michael Garrick Sextet with Don Rendell and Ian Carr
Prelude To Heart Is A Lotus

Michael Garrick’s 1970 LP Heart Is A Lotus went on to become one of the most important British jazz albums of the subsequent decade. For a few years prior to the record’s release Garrick and his sextet were jamming the tracks that would become HIAL with Don Rendell and Ian Carr. This session, recorded at the BBC in 1968, radically reconfigures the freeform, vaguely acidic freakouts of the final LP. An essential joining of dots.
