Change is certainly in the air for the famous group of tenorist Don Rendell and trumpeter Ian Carr – partly because this final set has some slight shifts in personnel, and partly because a few elements point the way towards new directions that Carr would take in the 70s!

Muse, 1973. Very Good ... $0.99
Charlie Parker may live again in the title of this set – but given the strengths of the group, the album would be great even without a reference to Bird!

A fantastic album of soulful jazz – and one that's got a lot more staying power than the macrame craze of the 70s!
