New Gato BarbieriChapter Four – Alive In New York ... LP
Impulse, 1975. Very Good .... $1.99
Searing live work from Gato Barbieri – a brilliant little album that follows on the spirit of his other Latin America sessions for Impulse! The format here is similar to those studio outings – an organic blend of percussion, keyboards, and sax – all bubbling together in a highly ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Impulse, Early 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold .... $6.99
Duke Ellington's drummer from the 50's leads a thunderous octet that includes Harry Edison on trumpet, Sam Most on alto, and Jim Cook on tenor.

New Marion BrownGeechee Recollections ... LP
Impulse, 1973. Used Gatefold .... Out Of Stock
Quite possibly our favorite record ever from reedman Marion Brown – and very different than both his seminal 60s recordings, and his European sides from later years! There's a really earthy feel to this record – one that really lives up to the title, and which comes from the use of ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New Alice ColtraneLord Of Lords ... LP
Impulse, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold .... $29.99
Beautifully high concept work from Alice Coltrane – the kind of record you'd use to announce the arrival of a new king – or lord, for that matter! The record features Coltrane at the head of a large group of string players – creating a full, rich sound that serves as the backdrop ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

New John ColtraneBallads ... LP
Impulse, 1962. Used Gatefold .... Out Of Stock
A perennial favorite in the John Coltrane catalog – a beautiful set of standards, handled in a warm laidback style – one that shows that Trane's groundbreaking group with Jimmy Garrison on bass, Elvin Jones on drums, and McCoy Tyner on piano could still express themselves with even more ...

New John ColtraneBest Of John Coltrane – His Greatest Years ... LP
Impulse, 1960s. Used 2LP Gatefold .... Out Of Stock
Truly the best of the best of Coltrane's years at Impulse – as the collection has a strong focus on the longer, more spiritual numbers that he was free to develop while working for the forward-thinking company. The set's stuffed with great numbers – and includes classics like "Afri ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

New John ColtraneColtrane (Impulse) ... LP
Impulse, 1962. Used Gatefold .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of John Coltrane's best early albums for Impulse – a warm set of modally grooving tracks, and one that picks up where My Favorite Things left off! The group here features McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums – a really magical rhythm section that ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

New John ColtraneLove Supreme ... LP
Impulse, 1964. Used Gatefold .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic – and virtually the blueprint for all spiritual soul jazz recordings of the 70s! John Coltrane's at a perfect point here – balanced between the modal hardbop of earlier years, and the freer soloing of his last few recordings. He links the traditions together with a majestic ...

New John Coltrane & Johnny HartmanJohn Coltrane & Johnny Hartman ... LP
Impulse, 1963. Used Gatefold .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark album of vocal jazz – and one of the few sessions that John Coltrane ever cut with a singer! In a way, the album's more Hartman's than it is Coltrane's – given that Johnny's warm, mellow style of singing isn't as free and open as Trane at his most adventurous – but at ...

Impulse, 1962. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The meeting of two classic talents late in their careers – in a setting that's ideal to bring out all the complexity of their well-honed genius!

New Gil Evans/Gary McFarlandDedication Series IX – The Great Arrangers (Out Of The Cool/Profiles) ... LP
Impulse, 1960/1966. Used 2LP Gatefold .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great 2LP set – with two classic albums on Impulse! First is Gil Evans' Out Of The Cool – a pivotal session for Gil – one that brought his genius to the American public strongly and successfully, without the help of Miles Davis!

Keith JarrettTreasure Island ... LP
Impulse, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold .... $7.99
Ultra-hip work from pianist Keith Jarrett – a session that's filled with joy and life, and which has a lot more energy than some of his albums for ECM! The work here is kind of a refinement of the freer styles that Jarrett had laid down on previous albums – performed with a strongly ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

New JJ JohnsonProof Positive ... LP
Impulse, 1964. Used Gatefold .... Out Of Stock
Positive proof that JJ Johnson's one of the greatest trombone players ever – a sublime quartet session for Impulse Records, and one that features some of his most striking, stripped-down work of the 60s! The focus here is really on Johnson's amazing tone and timing – but the record ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Quincy JonesQuintessence ... LP
Impulse, 1961. Used Gatefold .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very soulful set of big band material from Quincy Jones – recorded during that tight early 60s period when his arrangements just couldn't fail! The album's his only session for Impulse, and it's got a slightly deeper style than his work from the time for Mercury – a bit more ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

New John KlemmerMagic & Movement ... LP
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! The set was recorded live at two different venues – and it's a choppy slightly-funky batch of modal soul jazz tunes, with an approach that makes it feel like a lost ...

Impulse, Late 50s. Used Gatefold .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the first albums ever by this legendary jazz vocal group! LHR do the incredible – and create a set of vocal renditions of standards by the Basie band, putting jazzy lyrics in to replace the instrumental solos, but keeping the same vibe as the original tracks.

Yusef LateefGolden Flute ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Very Good+ Gatefold .... $16.99
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 ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Shelly Manne2 3 4 ... LP
Impulse, Early 60s. Used Gatefold .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A surprisingly great Shelly Manne album from the early 60s – one that follows a format that has Shelly playing in duo format ("2"), trio ("3"), and quartet ("4") – hence the title! The duo track is incredible – a spare duet with Coleman Hawkins ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

ABC/Impulse, 1977. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweet electric funk from Blue – recorded in a warm, largely arranged style that's reminiscent of the best Freddie Hubbard fusion work from the 70s – but which has an even tighter sound overall!

Impulse, 1961. Used Gatefold .... Out Of Stock
One of the all-time classics of early 60s mainstream jazz – and a beautiful record that showcases writing and arranging talents of Oliver Nelson!

New Oliver Nelson's Big BandLive From Los Angeles ... LP
Impulse, 1967. Used Gatefold .... Out Of Stock
A unique little outing for Oliver Nelson – one that breaks him out of the familiar territory of the studio, and puts him in a much more spontaneous live setting! Nelson's playing soprano sax on the album – using the instrument in an edgey way that has echoes of Coltrane, yet which also ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Chico O'FarrillNine Flags ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold .... $34.99
Very groovy work from Chico – still very Latin at the core, but with lots of light 60s touches on top, ala the work of Gary McFarland, or some of the other groove-conscious arrangers for Verve and Impulse!

Impulse, 1968. Used Gatefold .... Out Of Stock
A fantastic bit of "Eastern" tinged jazz – and a real musical Journey To Bliss on its own!

Excellent groovy jazz from the great Emil Richards!

Impulse, 1965. Used Gatefold .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful soundtrack to the dark British comedy of the same name – starring a young Michael Caine!

Impulse, 1965. Used Gatefold .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A record that will blow your mind – way different than you might expect from the cover! Sure, Pee Wee was a bit of a traditionalist on his instrument – the clarinet – but he's working here in a starkly modern way that almost recalls some of the best 50s work of Jimmy Guiffre, or ...

A righteous cover, a righteous title, and a righteous little session that features one long song that spans the entire length of the album!

Impulse, 1964. Used Gatefold .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A simple formula, but one of Shirley's best records from the mid 60s, and a tight batch of quartet tracks that also features Stanley Turrentine on tenor. The title cut's a classic jazz stepper in Chicago, with a subtly loping groove that works pretty darn well. Other tracks include "Blue ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Impulse, 1963. Used Gatefold .... Out Of Stock
Head to head blowing from Sonny Sitt and Paul Gonsalves – just the kind of twin-horn performance that Stitt was famous for in his live battle days, and one that also reminds us that Gonsalves can be a very loose swinger when he wants to be!

One of the coolest albums ever cut by guitarist Gabor Szabo – a set that also has him playing sitar as well!
