Albert AylerLove Cry ... CD
Impulse, 1968. Used .... $6.99
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 ... (Jazz) read more CD

Impulse, 1962. Used .... $6.99
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!

Impulse, 1963. Used .... $8.99
Art Blakey, without any Jazz Messengers – but still coming through loud and clear, thanks to help from a unique group that features Sonny Stitt on tenor, McCoy Tyner on piano, and Art Davis on bass!

Mindblowing work from Alice Coltrane – an album of incredible beauty that easily sits with the best of her classic early recordings for Impulse!

Impulse/GRP, 1967. Used .... Just Sold Out!
The first Impulse album issued after the early death of John Coltrane – and one of his last sessions for the label as well!

Sublimely spiritual work from the great John Coltrane – a live album, but one that's easily one of his most important contributions to music in the early 60s – and a set that we'd rank right up there with his best studio sides for Impulse or Atlantic Records at the time!

A pure statement of being and essence – and one of John Coltrane's spiritual masterpieces from the 60s!

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