✨✧ Albert AylerImpulse Story ... CD
Impulse, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

Impulse, 1969/1971. New Copy ... $8.99 16.98
Brilliant late work from Ayler – 2 albums in a single set! The Love Cry 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 ... read more CD

One of the last records made by avant sax legend Albert Ayler – a really mind-expanding album that's unlike anything else he ever did!

Impulse, 1975. Very Good+ ... $1.99
Searing live work from Gato Barbieri – a brilliant little album that follows on the spirit of his other Latin America sessions for Impulse!

Impulse, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $2.99

Impulse, 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold ... 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!

A wonderful chapter in the career of Ray Charles – and a key album in helping raise his respect level a notch or two in the early 60s!

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