Albert AylerNew Grass ... CD
Impulse, 1968. Used ... $12.99
One of the last albums that Ayler ever recorded – and one of his most memorable! The record shows Ayler at the crossroads, filled with emotion and meaning, struggling to convey his message to a lager audience. At times, he takes a strange soul/jazz format to do so, and has tracks featuring ... (Jazz) read more CD

Impulse/Verve, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
We love this record! Although Gato Barbieri has put out a few snoozers in his career, this amazing first chapter of his Latin venture for Impulse is an incredible record throughout – one of the greatest Impulse sessions of the 70s! Gato returns to his native Argentina for the session – ... (Jazz) read more CD

New Gato BarbieriChapter Three – Viva Emiliano Zapata ... CD
Impulse/Verve, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing work from Gato Barbieri's legendary exploration of Latin American sounds for Impulse Records – a set that's heavy on Cuban influences, thanks to arrangements from the mighty Chico O'Farrill! The sound is sublime – a bit fuller than some of Gato's other albums in the run, but ... (Jazz) read more CD

New Black NoteNothin' But The Swing ... CD
Impulse, 1995. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great little record that came out a few years ago and never got the success it deserved. The album's got a beautifully classic sound, and feels like one of the more melodic and lyrical sides from the Blue Note late 60s era – like stuff by Lee Morgan or Duke Pearson. This critically ...

New Art BlakeyAlbum Of The Year (Impulse) ... CD
Impulse, 1981. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Well, "album of the year" might be a hard claim to live up to – but this is a heck of a great record! The album's one of Blakey's real sleepers – cut years away from his time at Blue Note, with a fluid soulful approach that steps off his work at Prestige quite nicely. The ... (Jazz) read more CD

New Marion BrownVista ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1975. Used ... Out Of Stock
A strangely wonderful album from Marion Brown – quite different from his other work on Impulse, with a mellow electric edge that gives it a warm and laidback feel! The approach here is much more soulful than before – with finely crafted tunes that weave Brown's work on alto with ... (Jazz) read more CD

Impulse/Verve, 1971. Used Gatefold ... $7.99
One of Alice Coltrane's most adventurous albums – a beautiful blend of organ, harp, percussion, and strings – much of which are transcribed for the album by Ornette Coleman! The most haunting aspect of the album is Alice's work on organ – spare, jagged, with a nascent soulful ... (Jazz) read more CD

Impulse, 1960s. Used ... $1.99
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!

Pre-electric Jamal, but with the spiralling spiritual lyricism that he would later bring to his Fender Rhodes recordings.
