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 ... (Jazz) read more CD

A key later album from alto saxophonist Benny Carter – one that has him at the helm of a largeish group, but playing with a nicely focused sort of groove!

Impulse, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful session of soul jazz – and totally obscure! The album's one of a rare few cut by organist Gloria Coleman – an obscure east coast player who was also the wife of tenorist George Coleman, and who follows wonderfully in a strong tradition of female organists that includes ...

New John ColtraneColtrane Live At Birdland ... CD
Impulse/MCA, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Soaring and soulful work from the legendary John Coltrane – a tremendous live set that's one of his best early 60s albums! The groove is open and free – filled with pulsating modal rhythms, and handled with a slightly more relaxed feeling than some of Trane's studio work from the same ... (Jazz) read more CD

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 ... (Jazz) read more CD

Impulse, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Recorded in 1965, but not released until 1977, this is an earlier version of Trane's extended Meditations suite played by the quartet that included McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison, and Elvin Jones – without the extra accompaniment that graced the later version. Beautiful stuff, with a sound that' ... (Jazz) read more CD

Brilliant work – John Coltrane really opening up in his new spiritual mode of the 60s, hinting at the changes to come, while still keeping the modal groove of previous recordings!

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! Working here in his post-Prestige, post-Atlantic period, Coltrane's hitting ... (Jazz) read more CD

One of the greatest recordings ever made by John Coltrane in his late years – a spare set of duets with drummer Rashied Ali, recorded in 1967, but never issued until after his death!

Modal Coltrane at its finest – a record that almost returns the great one to the territory explored at the end of his years at Atlantic Records, but which still incorporates all of the new ideas learned afterwards!

A classic – and virtually the blueprint for all spiritual soul jazz recordings of the 70s!
