‘Shades Of Blue’ s is one of the finest 60’s British Jazz albums. Saxophonist Don Rendell and trumpeter Ian Carr deliver a fine modal influenced set. ‘Blue Mosque’ and ‘Latin Blue’ are wonderfully understated. ‘Big City Strut’ swaggers as well as struts, whilst ‘Sailin’ swings effortlessly. The title number is a contemplative affair. Strong and worthy of its accolades.
