The new issue of Record Collector announces the latest in the mag’s series of exclusive vinyl releases – this time a 2LP set from a Don Rendell quintet recorded at Klooks Kleek in apparently excellent sound in September 1963. Musicians aside from Don are Glenn Hughes (baritone), Kenny Baker (tr), Lennie Williams (bs), Chick Andrews (dr). The presence of Glenn Hughes is exciting – he died in 1966 is a house fire, was highly rated by the cognoscenti but left very little on record to attest to this (he plays the low notes on Georgie Fame & the Blue Flames ‘Get Away’…). During 1964 he briefly comprised a trio with John McLaughlin (gtr) and Rick Laird (bs) – the Rick Laird Trio in the handful of press ads for their gigs.
