    Don Rendell will never die. Not as far as I'm concerned.

      Seconded! Seems all my jazz heroes are dropping like flys these last few years, not surprising given their age but very sad all the same. RIP Don may your legacy live on for centuries to come and glad you got to see the respect you so rightly deserved later on in life.

          All wonderful but I love the 'Dusk Fire' album absolutely stunning music. Never likely to own an original mind you. if you have one lying around...

            Blue Mosque is one of the most perfect things I´ve heard. It was cradle music for my son.

              Apparently a very religious man - I hope his soul is received in heaven

              Anyway, so many great Rendell tracks to choose from - and many have done so above
              Here is one of my favourites from one of my favourite records

              "Record collecting is no mere hobby, no innocuous leisurely diversion. It is a feverish passion bordering on dementia, driving those under the influence to irrational, compulsive, fanatical extremes."

                Sorry to hear this along with Mark Murphy. I remember years ago stopping for a pint in Tavistock and seeing a little poster for Don Rendell who had played there the night before. Just didn't expect it in a little pub on the edge of Dartmoor and was a bit gutted I wasn't there the day before. I heard he had a regular gig in some pub Greenwich way and kept meaning to go. There was something about his tone. What a loss.

                I think Antibes and Dusk fire are my favs, and Blue Mosque already mentioned. And this:

                  I first encountered Don Rendell back in the mid80s playing with the Robin Jones Jazz Turbo - a killer line up of musicians including Tony Uter on conga.

                  RIP Don.
