Albert AylerAlbert Ayler In Greenwich Village ... CD
Impulse/Universal (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... Around May 13, 2015
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 ... $6.99
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 ... Around May 13, 2015
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 BarbieriImpulse Story ... CD
Impulse, Mid 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
We love this music – and it's some of our favorite ever on Impulse Records! Gato Barbieri's a musician that's worked in many styles over the years, but during his brief mid 70s run on Impulse, he cut some tremendous records that blended Latin modes of his South American roots with some of ... read more CD

Ran BlakeCocktails At Dusk – A Noir Tribute To Chris Connor ... CD
Impulse, 2015. New Copy ... $26.99
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

✨✧ Art BlakeyJazz Message ... LP
Impulse, 1963. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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! The album's still got all the hardbop charm of Blakey's best Blue Note dates, but also feels ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label pressing – cover and vinyl are nice! Cover has a small cutout hole.)

Marion BrownThree For Shepp ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... Around May 13, 2015
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 ... Around May 13, 2015
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

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Mel BrownChicken Fat ... CD
Impulse, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the funkiest records ever recorded for Impulse – and the debut set by guitarist Mel Brown! Mel has a really down-and-dirty style that's quite unusual for the label at the time – a rootsy approach to guitar that's steeped in equal parts jazz, soul, and R&B – and which ... read more CD

Benny CarterAdditions To Further Definitions ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... Around May 20, 2015
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

✨✧ Gloria ColemanSoul Sisters ... CD
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 ... read more CD

✨✧ Alice ColtraneJourney In Satchidananda ... LP
Impulse, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... 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)... $19.99
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)... Around April 20, 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

✨✧ John ColtraneAfrica/Brass ... LP
Impulse, 1961. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Quite a different album than usual for John Coltrane, but a classic one too – and a set that has the great one exploring his ideas in a set of longer tracks recorded with an expanded jazz orchestra! The format's hardly the mainstream big band of the time – as Coltrane's filled the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange & black label stereo pressing. Cover has a small split in the top seam. Vinyl plays with clicks and crackles.)
