Albert AylerLove Cry ... CD
Impulse, 1968. Used ... $4.99
Brilliant late work from Ayler – one of his last truly great albums! The 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 Gato BarbieriChapter One – Latin America ... LP
Impulse, 1973. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
We love this record!

New Art BlakeyJazz Messengers! (Impulse) ... LP
Impulse, 1961. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Killer stuff by Art Blakey – one of his few non-Blue Note sessions from the time, and a hard-wailing set that features the Jazz Messengers as a sextet! The format is one that flourished briefly in these early 60s years – and in this case, the already great lineup of Lee Morgan on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Alice ColtraneJourney In Satchidananda ... LP
Impulse, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $14.99 15.98
Arguably the most classic Alice Coltrane album on Impulse – and a strong group effort that features some great work from Pharoah Sanders!

Impulse/Superior Viaduct, 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99
Early work by Alice Coltrane – somewhat under the shadow of her late husband, as you'd guess from the use of his name on the front cover – but really stepping out here with a voice of her own!

Impulse, 1961/1962. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $16.99

Soaring and soulful work from the legendary John Coltrane – a tremendous live set that's one of his best early 60s albums!

John ColtraneConcert In Japan ... LP
Impulse, 1966/1973. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A seminal set from John Coltrane – one of those amazing records that wasn't issued until a few years after his death – then blew folks' minds even further with the depths of his talents!

John ColtraneCosmic Music ... CD
Impulse, 1968. Used ... $7.99
A set that really earns its title – as it's easily some of the most cosmic music John Coltrane ever recorded – and also kind of a way of saying goodbye to the planet, to leave his music in the hands of a next generation of creators! The album features material recorded by a Coltrane ... read more CD

John ColtraneCrescent (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Impulse, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
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! There's a very strong edge to Coltrane's tone here – and even on the mellower ballads, he plays with a sound not always ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

John ColtraneExpression ... LP
Impulse, 1967. Good Gatefold ... $11.99
The first Impulse album issued after the early death of John Coltrane – and one of his last sessions for the label as well!

In many ways, the Impulse Story is also The Coltrane Story – as the label helped John Coltrane attain rich new freedoms in his music, and Coltrane helped pave the way for some key new talents to come to the label!

New John ColtraneKulu Se Mama ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of our favorite albums ever from John Coltrane – but a record that's sometimes eclipsed by the genius of A Love Supreme!

A landmark album of vocal jazz – and one of the few sessions that John Coltrane ever cut with a singer!

New Yusef LateefLive At Pep's ... LP
Impulse, 1964. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Yusef Lateef's most fantastic records, and an album that grooves in a way that few of his other ones do.

This ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Impulse, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic – and one of Mingus' greatest albums ever! This one ranks right up with The Clown and Pithecantropus Erectus for sheer raw power and emotion – and Mingus' writing here is incredibly tight, giving soloists like Charlie Mariano, Jaki Byard, Richard Williams, and Jerome ... read more CD

Impulse, 1974. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of Sam Rivers' most striking albums for Impulse, a record that has him leading a fairly large group – working in an "orchestral context", as the notes on the cover say, but not really a jazz orchestra – more of a freewheeling avant ensemble, in the tradition of work by ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
