✨✧ Albert AylerAlbert Ayler In Greenwich Village ... CD
Impulse/Universal (Japan), 1966/1967. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the first big moments of Albert Ayler's work in the jazz mainstream – and a record that doesn't dim his greatness at all from the earlier sides recorded for ESP! The album's got a sharply angular sound that more than lives up to its vibrant cover image – a well-honed approach to ... read more CD

Albert AylerImpulse Story ... CD
Impulse, Late 60s. Used ... $2.99
Our favorite work by Albert Ayler – material we love even more than his better-known sides for ESP! Although Ayler at ESP definitely set a new level in 60s jazz, we actually really treasure his later sides for Impulse – records that are sometimes not as focused, often a bit failed, but ... read more CD

Albert AylerNew Grass ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $13.99
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 ... read more CD

Gato BarbieriChapter Four – Alive In New York ... LP
Impulse, 1975. Very Good ... $2.99
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 ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Cover has a cut corner, some wear, and a lightly wrinkled corner.)

✨✧ Count BasieCount Basie & The Kansas City Seven ... LP
Impulse, 1962. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $19.99
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! The sounds here echo the Basie groove of the earlier years, but the overall ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ran BlakeCocktails At Dusk – A Noir Tribute To Chris Connor ... CD
Impulse, 2015. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really unique little album from pianist Ran Blake – and that's saying a lot, given that all of his music is pretty darn unique! The album features Blake at his warmest – serving up a tribute to the vocalist Chris Connor, but at a level that's mostly instrumental – as a good ... read more CD

Art BlakeyArt Blakey & The Jazz Messengers (Impulse) ... CD
Impulse/MCA, 1961. Used ... $5.99
Killer stuff by Art Blakey – one of his few non-Blue Note sessions from the time, and a hard-wailing set that features the Jazz Messengers as a sextet! The format is one that flourished briefly in these early 60s years – and in this case, the already great lineup of Lee Morgan on ... read more CD

✨✧ Marion BrownThree For Shepp ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $13.99
An unbelievable recording! As Archie Shepp made his first album for Impulse a tribute to Coltrane, Marion Brown made his a tribute to Shepp – a wonderful lineage of avant talent in the 60s, stated boldly here, given Brown's amazing talent on the record! The album's filled with hard, soulful ... read more CD

✨✧ Marion BrownVista ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Temporarily 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 ... read more CD

✨✧ Mel BrownBlues For We ... LP
Impulse, 1969. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A record that's a lot more jazz than you'd guess from the title – a seminal set from the mighty Mel Brown! The "blues" here are hardly the familiar kind – and instead, the album really stresses the more soul-based sound of Mel Brown's work – thanks to some very groovy ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label pressing, in amazing shape!)

Henry Butler & the Steven Bernstein Hot 9Viper's Drag ... CD
Impulse, 2014. Used ... $7.99
One of the hippest records that Henry Butler has cut in a long long time – and a set that really takes us back to the most inventive sounds he gave us during his first few years of recording! The album's a collaboration with trumpeter Steven Bernstein – who brings a lot of modern ... read more CD

Benny CarterAdditions To Further Definitions ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $14.99
A great example of the cool, classy swing that Benny Carter hit in the 1960s – a groove that was more regularly brought to backings for standout singers of the time, but which also works beautifully here in an instrumental mode! Carter's alto sax is at the top of the charts, but the album's ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Benny CarterFurther Definitions ... CD
Impulse, 1961. Used ... $3.99
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! In addition to Benny's alto, the record also features tenor sax from Charlie Rouse and Coleman Hawkins, plus one more alto from Phil ... read more CD

✨✧ Alice ColtraneJourney In Satchidananda ... LP
Impulse, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Arguably the most classic Alice Coltrane album on Impulse – and a strong group effort that features some great work from Pharoah Sanders! Coltrane leads two different small combos on the record – both with Sanders on saxes, plus either Cecil McBee or Charlie Haden on bass, and Rashied ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Alice ColtraneMonastic Trio ... LP
Impulse/Superior Viaduct, 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Early work by Alice Coltrane – somewhat under the shadow of her late husband, as you'd guess from the use of his name on the front cover – but really stepping out here with a voice of her own! The Monastic Trio of the set features Alice on harp and piano – alongside bass from ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Alice ColtraneUniversal Consciousness ... LP
Impulse/Superior Viaduct, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... On June 9, 2015
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 ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
