✨✧ John Lee HookerIt Serve You Right To Suffer ... LP
Impulse, 1965. Very Good- Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
An oddly placed session for Hooker – considering that it was recorded for Impulse during the 60s, when most of their work was in a jazz vein. In keeping with that, they've backed Hooker with a trio of jazz players – Milt Hinton, Panama Francis, and Barry Galbraith – who give the ... (Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Freddie HubbardBody & The Soul ... LP
Impulse, 1963. Very Good+ ... $24.99
A real standout in the early career of trumpeter Freddie Hubbard – a very unique session that has him working with some larger arrangements in the background – blowing these magical solos over the top, while still hitting a great edge with the rest of the musicians as well!

✨✧ Milt JacksonJust The Way It Had to Be ... LP
Impulse/ABC, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $7.99
Way nicer than some of Milt's earlier work – and one of the gems he recorded with bassist Ray Brown during the late 60s. The group's got a tight soul jazz stepping groove – with Monty Alexander on piano, comping along right over Ray's warm basslines in a very tasty way. Teddy Edwards ...

Milt JacksonMemphis Jackson ... LP
Impulse, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $24.99
One of the grooviest albums ever from the legendary Milt Jackson – an upbeat, almost funky set of soul jazz tracks – played with some great grooves on the bottom! Those trademark Jackson vibes are firmly in place, but the setting is quite different from the staid sounds of the MJQ ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Impulse/Be With (UK), 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A mindblowing album from Ahmad Jamal – a fantastic start to the 70s, and a set of music that shows just how far the pianist had come in just a few short years!

There's a nicely warming vibe on this album from Keith Jarrett – a sound that's sometimes a bit more laidback and personal, but which is still carried off with familiar associates Dewey Redman on tenor, Charlie Haden on bass, and Paul Motian on drums!

Although often lost to the sands of time because of the small pressing/small reissue history of the sides cut for the label, Yusef Lateef's work for Impulse was certainly some of his strongest of the 60s, and it showed him moving way past the spacey mysticism of earlier albums, into a tighter vein ...

✨✧ Archie SheppFor Losers ... LP
Impulse, 1969. Very Good- Gatefold ... $24.99
One of the grooviest albums from Archie Shepp's post-new thing years for Impulse – a nicely grooving session that mixes soul-based tracks with more righteous spiritual jazz moments! The approach here is a nicely varied – a laidback, collaborative spirit that's even quite different from ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Impulse/MCA (Japan), 1966. Used ... $9.99
A great counterpart to some of Archie Shepp's studio albums for Impulse – a live date recorded in San Francisco, with a slightly freer, sharper edge! The sound is almost free at times, but always with that strong sense of focus that Archie brought to his brilliant work of the time – ... (Jazz) read more CD

A pair of Impulse Records classics from Archie Shepp!

A whole new dimension for Snarky Puppy – and a great one too – as the group works here with larger backings from the Metropole Orkest, who really create some amazing sounds in the process!

Impulse, 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic set from the London scene – really powerful sounds from a group who are heavy on percussion, but also do plenty with their horns! The group features strong tenor from Shabaka Hutchings, who also wrote all the tracks here – but they've also got a very heavy bottom sound, ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Sonny Stitt & Paul GonsalvesSalt & Pepper ... LP
Impulse, 1963. Very Good Gatefold ... $11.99
Head to head blowing from Sonny Sitt and Paul Gonsalves – just the kind of twin-horn performance that Stitt was famous for in his live battle days, and one that also reminds us that Gonsalves can be a very loose swinger when he wants to be! The tracks are all long, and played with the sort ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Impulse/Modern Harmonic, Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $24.99 25.99
A record that's every bit as beautiful and striking as its cover – a cool collection of all the wonderful guitar-driven grooves that guitarist Gabor Szabo created for Impulse Records in the 60s!

Gabor SzaboMore Sorcery ... LP
Impulse, 1967. Very Good Gatefold ... $24.99
A great record that's sort of a follow-up to Gabor's excellent Sorcerer LP – and like that one, features long tracks that have a spiralling modal feel that's much more serious, much more grooving, and a lot less campish than some of his other albums of the time. The album features a two-guita ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Impulse, 1966. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
Breezy brilliance from the legendary Gabor Szabo – and one of the grooviest albums the Hungarian guitarist recorded during the 60s! The set's almost a tightening up of the style that Szabo first brought to prominence in his work with Chico Hamilton – a sound that's got roots in gypsy ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gabor SzaboWind Sky & Diamonds ... LP
Impulse, Late 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $29.99
Excellent trippy pop-psychedelia from Gabor Szabo! The record's a bit less jazz than some of his other efforts, with more of that faked-out "eastern"production that you'd get on efforts like these – with occasional voices behind his guitar. Titles include "The End Of ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

A very early date as a leader by McCoy Tyner – cut at a time when he was making big waves in the John Coltrane Quartet, but also sounding plenty darn great on his own!

Ben WebsterSee You At The Fair ... LP
Impulse, 1964. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $14.99
A great little album from Ben Webster – perhaps not his most sophisticated, jazz-wise, but done up in a cool cover that has him standing in front of the steel globe at the 1964 World's Fair in New York. The music on the disc has a similar optimistic approach – as Ben solos lightly over ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

A pretty hard-grooving set from Michael White – a mixture of funky fusion tracks and west coast soul jazz numbers, performed with bass, Fender Rhodes, guitar, and a heck of a lot of percussion! White's violin is grooving over the top of the more uptempo tracks, riffing away in washes of ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Amazing work from violinist Michael White – one of a few that he cut for the Impulse label in the early 70s, all of which helped to completely redefine the use of his instrument in jazz!

The title's no mistake – both in its pluralization and its acclaim for Kai Winding – as the leader here is working with a brace of additional trombones, all in a groove that's one of his most fluid on record to date!
