New Albert AylerLove Cry/The Last Album ... CD
Impulse, 1969/1971. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Brilliant late work from Ayler – 2 albums in a single set! The Love Cry session has none of the jazz-meets-other music feel of some of the other Impulse albums – and is more in the straight expressive style of the ESP recordings. Tracks are more reined in here – with some short ... read more CD

New Albert AylerNew Grass ... CD
Impulse, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the last albums that Ayler ever recorded – and one of his most memorable! The record shows Ayler at the crossroads, filled with emotion and meaning, struggling to convey his message to a lager audience. At times, he takes a strange soul/jazz format to do so, and has tracks featuring ... read more CD

Impulse/Verve, 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
We love this record! Although Gato Barbieri has put out a few snoozers in his career, this amazing first chapter of his Latin venture for Impulse is an incredible record throughout – one of the greatest Impulse sessions of the 70s! Gato returns to his native Argentina for the session – ... read more CD

New Gato BarbieriChapter Three – Viva Emiliano Zapata ... CD
Impulse/Verve, 1974. Used ... Out Of Stock
Amazing work from Gato Barbieri's legendary exploration of Latin American sounds for Impulse Records – a set that's heavy on Cuban influences, thanks to arrangements from the mighty Chico O'Farrill!

Count BasieCount Basie & The Kansas City Seven ... LP
Impulse, 1962. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Stripped-down Count Basie from the start of the 60s – a great little set that has the Count working with some of the best players from his larger group, in a session of even more intimate small combo material! The sounds here echo the Basie groove of the earlier years, but the overall ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Impulse, 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Well, "album of the year" might be a hard claim to live up to – but this is a heck of a great record! The album's one of Blakey's real sleepers – cut years away from his time at Blue Note, with a fluid soulful approach that steps off his work at Prestige quite nicely. The ... read more CD

Impulse, 1973/1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing work from Marion Brown – two albums we'd never be without! Geechee Recollections is quite possibly our favorite record ever from reedman Brown – and very different than both his seminal 60s recordings, and his European sides from later years! There's a really earthy feel to ... read more CD

If you read these pages often enough, you'll know that we're big fans of recordings made by American expatriot players while living in Europe during the 60's.

Sharp-edged John Coltrane at his best – a record that we'd rank right up there with Love Supreme, and which is a key transition point in Coltrane's musical ideas!

ABC/Impulse, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock

Impulse, 1963. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $12.99

Impulse, 1973. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent work by Klemmer – filled with the kind of fire and emotion that you don't get on many of his other records!

New Yusef Lateef1984 ... LP
Impulse, 1971. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the great recordings that Yusef Lateef made when pianist Mike Nock was in his group. Nock, at this point, had a great rhythmic feel, and he gives Lateef's compositions a great modal sound that's similar to his work with the Three Out trio in Australia. Tracks include "Try Love", ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
