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.

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.

A pretty strange album of "hip" fairytales and fables, recorded by jazz DJ/hipster Al Jazzbo Collins, alongside a group featuring Steve Allen, Hal Blaine, and Terry Gibbs.

New Shirley ScottGreat Scott!! (Impulse) ... LP
Impulse, 1964. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Swinging organ tracks from Shirley, with large band backing by Oliver Nelson, very much in the mode of Jimmy Smith's albums with Nelson on Verve! Includes a nice reading of the theme from "Shot In The Dark", plus "Hoe Down", "Shadows Of Paris", and "Great ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Archie SheppCry Of My People ... LP
Impulse, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $16.99
One of the most righteous albums ever from Archie Shepp – a beautiful late Impulse set of grooves, and a record that matches the genius of Attica Blues! Shepp's working with a losse collective of players that includes Charles Greenlee, Harold Mabern, and Beaver Harris – plus vocalists ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Archie SheppFire Music ... LP
Impulse, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic stuff – easily one of Archie Shepp's greatest albums, and certainly one of the pivotal points of 60s avant garde jazz! The album features Shepp leading a crack "new thing" line up that includes Ted Curson on trumpet, Marion Brown on alto, Joe Chambers on drums, Reggie ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Archie SheppOn This Night ... LP
Impulse, 1965. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of the best Shepp records ever, and one of his most successful blends of the disparate influences that comprised his style. The group is a bit smaller than usual – which gives good focus to players like Bobby Hutcherson, Henry Grimes, and Joe Chambers. Shepp contributed some of his most ...

New Sonny Stitt & Paul GonsalvesSalt & Pepper ... LP
Impulse, 1963. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily 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! The tracks are all long, and played with the sort ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Gabor SzaboJazz Raga ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the coolest albums ever cut by guitarist Gabor Szabo – a set that also has him playing sitar as well! The album's got a sound that's as groovy as you'd expect from the title – a mix of Gabor's usual jazz modes, which are already pretty darn great, and some of the Indian music ...

New Gabor SzaboMore Sorcery ... LP
Impulse, 1967. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $14.99
A great record that's sort of a follow-up to Gabor's excellent Sorcerer LP – and like that one, features long tracks that have a spiralling modal feel that's much more serious, much more grooving, and a lot less campish than some of his other albums of the time. The album features a two-guita ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Gabor SzaboSorcerer ... LP
Impulse, 1967. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best albums ever by this great Eastern European guitarist, and a groovy set of spiralling jazz tracks, recorded live at The Jazz Workshop with a 2-guitar frontline, and backing by a very tight rhythm combo. The sound is amazing, with lots of choppy modal grooves, and other longer tracks ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Gabor SzaboWind Sky & Diamonds ... LP
Impulse, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold ... $11.99
Excellent trippy pop-psychedelia from Gabor Szabo! The record's a bit less jazz than some of his other efforts, with more of that faked-out "eastern"production that you'd get on efforts like these – with occasional voices behind his guitar. Titles include "The End Of ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Clark Terry & Chico O'FarrillSpanish Rice ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $11.99
Sweet Latin licks from Clark Terry and Chico O'Farrill – cut in a mode that's very similar to O'Farrill's best Verve work of the 60s! The vibe is kind of a mod take on Afro Cuban sounds – not really Latin soul, but with a playful vibe that mixes together jazz and Latin with equal parts ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

A rare non-Blue Note 60s date as a leader from Stanley Turrentine – recorded for Impluse when his (then) wife Shirley Scott was contracted to the label – and featuring the talents of both players on some very groovy tracks!

Funky and soulful spiritual work from Michael White, and a better set of grooves than you'll find on most of his other records.

One of the killer albums that Michael White cut for Impulse Records in the early 70 – a sweet set of spiritual jazz that took his instrument to a whole new level! Normally, the violin isn't an instrument we love in jazz, but White really transforms it here – playing it with a stretched- ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

A strange little package that's dedicated to the jazz use of the bass – and which features bass-heavy highlights from the history of Impulse records.
