Impulse, 1970. Used ... $6.99
Pre-electric Jamal, but with the spiralling spiritual lyricism that he would later bring to his Fender Rhodes recordings. Tracks are very open-ended – a continuing growth of the lyrical exploration he first forged in the late 50s, expanding out to embrace the new freedom of the 70s, but ... read more CD

New Keith JarrettBop-Be ... LP
Impulse, 1978. Very Good+ ... $4.99
No bebop here, despite what you might guess from the title – and instead an album of much freer lines and wider musical vision, captured with Keith Jarrett's famous group of the 70s!

Impulse, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $3.99
Excellent work by Klemmer – filled with the kind of fire and emotion that you don't get on many of his other records!

One of the greatest albums ever from Yusef Lateef – even if it's sometimes overlooked!

Yusef's mixing his bag nicely for this mid 60s classic – working through tunes that are a mixture of soulful hardbop and eastern exoticism – a shift that's marked by Lateef's changing reed work on tenor, flute, and oboe! The group's a hip quartet with players from Lateef's Detroit ... read more CD

Although often lost to the sands of time because of the small pressing/small reissue history of the sides cut for the label, Yusef Lateef's work for Impulse was certainly some of his strongest of the 60s, and it showed him moving way past the spacey mysticism of earlier albums, into a tighter vein ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
