A figure in British modern jazz for over half a century, Don Rendell was both active protagonist and key witness to the main developments in the music from its rise out of tiny clubs and back rooms on up to the most prestigious national stages. In many ways, 'Space Walk' was as much a valedictory as transitionary album for Rendell. It was his last for Denis Preston, the fabled producer behind Lansdowne Studios, described by Neil Ardley as a 'rare Diaghilev like figure' who steered many of the key figures of the British jazz scene into the studio when nobody else would record them. It was also Rendell's final project for EMI Columbia and his last as a leader for a major record label.
