No stone has been left unturned to deliver this absolute labour of love to the highest possible standard! Inside is a link to a printable online pdf which contains never before seen photographs, interviews with the remaining living band members and liner notes from Peter Yamson Sun Of Africa Radio 3 presenter and award-winning jazz writer Alyn Shipton.
The band played together for seven years and during this fruitful time they made a plethora of deeply melodic, post-bop British jazz compositions that later on took influences from Indo and more spiritually guided jazz. This is UK jazz at its absolute finest and is a treasure not to be missed. The writing is more structured, a pictorial composition, storytelling, replete with literary allusions. Older jazz fans clung on to their Charlie Parker collections, their big band swing albums, some perhaps a few even their Blue Notes.
British modern jazz record titles sold in just a few thousands, hence their premium today at auction. However we have reason to be grateful that Denis Preston and others struggled against the tide of popular music to bring us good music, that was not especially popular.
Download Link Isra. Yes, I saw that article and offer. In my more fanciful moments I imagine a crowdfunding campaign to produce a top notch limited edition box-set…. The specially invited audience at Lansdowne Studio for this recording included Beeb stars and jazz enthusiasts the late John le Mesurier and Warren Mitchell, I believe. It did look nice mind. What little I have is mainly on CD, from the Vocation and other reissues of more than a decade ago now, when Gilles Peterson was reviving interest in the period — and helping boost the prices of originals into the stratosphere, of course.
British jazz of the period does have a particular flavour, especially as it edged towards fusion. I suppose Protoje Ancient Future are more accurately described as jazz-rock rather than fusion as such….
Oh — and your post is somewhat open to misreading, LJC: I read it with a sense of shock thinking that Archie Shepp had died! OMG I see what you mean, quick fix, thank you. Well, THAT was enlightening! This is the best non-American jazz group I have heard since Django was active. Thanks for posting the audio clip and the Randell Carr quintet. These were all great nights and served as an introduction for me to top notch modern jazz.
At a Zoot Money gig at the club,probably in the late 70s I mentioned the Highwayman nights to Garrick,who was in the audience,and he said he was amazed that so many people still talked to him about these sessions and had the The Don Rendell Ian Carr Quintet Dusk Fire enthusiasm for The Don Rendell Ian Carr Quintet Dusk Fire music they heard there. Great times! It still sounds great! Where do they disappear to?! A fantastic record! I believe it never came out in stereo on Columbia? The CD will have to do.
The whole Lansdowne jazz series is fantastic. Anyway great post! It brought back memories of seeing the quintet The Don Rendell Ian Carr Quintet Dusk Fire at the Sunbury Jazz and Blues festival in and also at the BBC Jazz Club recordings in the s.
