Impulse, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Oliver Nelson's follow-up to his classic Blues & The Abstract Truth session for Impulse – and like that one, a tremendous little album – filled with deep tones and wonderful colors in sound!

Impulse, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $13.99
Very groovy stuff! Although the bulk of the material on this album is "pops meet jazz", in the hands of Oliver Nelson, it's transformed into something wonderful – with just the right blend of jazz to keep things lively. The arrangements have a nice off-kilter sound that works well ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Impulse (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... Around May 13, 2015
One of the most impressive albums ever from arranger Oliver Nelson – a set that really shows the full depth of his mighty talents! Side one features Nelson working with a larger orchestra – similar to the kind of ensemble he arranged for other artists in the 60s, but handled here with ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Oliver Nelson's Big BandLive From Los Angeles ... LP
Impulse, 1967. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A unique little outing for Oliver Nelson – one that breaks him out of the familiar territory of the studio, and puts him in a much more spontaneous live setting! Nelson's playing soprano sax on the album – using the instrument in an edgey way that has echoes of Coltrane, yet which also ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Oscar PettifordDeep Passion (with bonus tracks) ... CD
ABC/Impulse, 1956/1957. Used ... $8.99
A really wonderful little chapter in the rich, and all-too-short career of bassist Oscar Pettiford – larger group recordings done for ABC in the mid 50s! The sessions show Pettiford to be surprisingly great at such a format – leading a group through Gigi Gryce arrangements that have a ... (Jazz) read more CD

Bill Plummer & The Cosmic BrotherhoodBill Plummer & The Cosmic Brotherhood ... LP
Impulse/Captain High (Germany), 1967. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $24.99
Incredibly great – and one of the best of the late 60s trippy jazz albums on Impulse! Bill Plummer plays electric sitar with the "Cosmic Brotherood", a group that includes Tom Scott on saxes and electronics, Carol Kaye on Fender bass, Milt Holland on tabla, and Mike Craden on a ...

✨✧ Jimmy PonderIllusions ... LP
Impulse, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet smooth album of funky jazz from guitarist Jimmy Ponder – with a style that's right out of the Bob James-arranged albums for Kudu! Jimmy's guitar is nice and lean, laidback over some tripped out, easily funky arrangements, with strings conducted by Johnny Pate on a few numbers, and ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sun RaNubians Of Plutonia (Impulse pressing) ... LP
Impulse, 1959/1974. Very Good Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Impulse issue of an excellent Saturn session from 1959. Ra and the Arkestra are playing in a fine mix of straight jazz and spacey styles, with Ra on electric piano throughout the entire set. A few tracks have some great chanted vocals – and we're not sure if they're sung by one of the ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sun RaSpace Is The Place ... CD
Impulse, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A brilliant record by Sun Ra & The Arkestra – and an album that forever gave them a slogan to live by! The record's different than some of the other Arkestra work from the time – in that it's a bit tighter and more spiritual, more in keeping with the style of the Blue Thumb label, ...

Sam RiversSizzle ... LP
ABC/Impulse, 1976. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A different record for Rivers – especially when you compare it to the rest of his early 70s output! Rivers' own playing is still very similar to other records – in that he's blowing his head off on tenor, soprano, and flute – but the backing's by a pretty fierce rhythm combo that ...

Sam RiversStreams ... LP
Impulse, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $16.99
Classic live set for Impulse that marked Rivers' shift from a player who kept slightly inside in a modernist vein, to one who burst out in a very free style. Rivers plays long flowing lines on both flute and tenor, and he's backed by Cecil Mc Bee on bass and Norman Connors on drums. The whole LP ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Impulse (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... Around May 13, 2015
Stunning! This is a beautiful album that's one of Max Roach's most powerful recordings, and a record that's been the inspiration for countless other imitations over the years. Roach leads a group with Richard Williams, Clifford Jordan, and Mal Waldron – and they're matched with a vocal ... (Jazz) read more CD

Impulse, 1961. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Max Roach's masterpiece! This record is one of his most perfectly realized visions – and it's a marvelous album that combines politics and modern jazz, yet still manages to swing! The players are some of the hippest that Roach ever worked with – and include Eric Dolphy, Booker Little, ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sonny RollinsAlfie ... LP
Impulse, 1965. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $28.99
A beautiful soundtrack to the dark British comedy of the same name – starring a young Michael Caine! You might expect it to be a bit schmaltzy, but it's pure jazz all the way through, and features strong inside playing by Rollins over lively orchestrations by Oliver Nelson – filled ...

✨✧ Sonny RollinsSonny Rollins On Impulse! ... LP
Impulse, 1965. Used ... Out Of Stock
A tremendous little album from Sonny Rollins – one of his most sharp-edged sessions of the mid 60s, and a bold departure from some of his previous work for RCA! The album has a crackling sense of energy that more than lives up to the exclamation point in the title – a starker quality ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Pee Wee RussellAsk Me Now! ... LP
Impulse, 1965. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A record that will blow your mind – way different than you might expect from the cover! Sure, Pee Wee was a bit of a traditionalist on his instrument – the clarinet – but he's working here in a starkly modern way that almost recalls some of the best 50s work of Jimmy Guiffre, or ...

The one and only album recorded by the Russian Jazz Quartet – a one-off group that featured saxophonist Boris Midney and bassist Igor Berukshtis, both of whom defected from the Soviet Union – plus Roger Kellaway on piano and Grady Tate on drums.

Pharoah SandersBlack Unity ... LP
Impulse, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A righteous cover, a righteous title, and a righteous little session that features one long song that spans the entire length of the album! "Black Unity" may well be Pharoah Sanders' freest expression on record to date – but it's also still got all the hallmarks of his best moments ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Pharoah SandersElevation ... CD
Impulse, 1974. Used ... $9.99
A fantastic album by Pharoah Sanders – one of his later albums for Impulse, but one of his best! The record has Pharoah grooving in a strongly modal style – working up long passages of rhythm, piano, and percussion that really build on the promise delivered in earlier tunes on records ...
