Albert AylerImpulse Story ... CD
Impulse, Late 60s. Used ... $4.99
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 ...

✨✧ Albert AylerNew Grass ... CD
Impulse, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 ... (Jazz) 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 ... (Jazz) read more CD

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 ... (Jazz) read more CD

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 ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Ray CharlesGenius + Soul = Jazz (2CD expanded version – includes My Kind Of Jazz vols 1 to 3) ... CD
Impulse/Concord, 1961/Early 70s. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing look at the jazz side of Ray Charles – with 4 full albums on one 2CD set! The core featured album is Genius + Soul = Jazz – 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! We might argue ... (Soul) read more CD

✨✧ Alice ColtraneUniversal Consciousness (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Impulse/Verve, 1971. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ John ColtraneLove Supreme ... CD
Impulse/GRP, 1964. Used ... Out Of Stock
A classic – and virtually the blueprint for all spiritual soul jazz recordings of the 70s! John Coltrane's at a perfect point here – balanced between the modal hardbop of earlier years, and the freer soloing of his last few recordings. He links the traditions together with a majestic ...

John Coltrane & Johnny HartmanJohn Coltrane & Johnny Hartman ... CD
Impulse, 1963. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A landmark album of vocal jazz – and one of the few sessions that John Coltrane ever cut with a singer! In a way, the album's more Hartman's than it is Coltrane's – given that Johnny's warm, mellow style of singing isn't as free and open as Trane at his most adventurous – but at ... (Jazz) read more CD

Live material from a Village Gate performance that included the leading lights of the East Village free scene in the 60s – John Coltrane, Albert Ayler, Grachan Moncur, and Archie Shepp!

Curtis FullerCabin In The Sky ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1962. Used ... $25.99
A very unique album by Curtis Fuller – quite different than any of his other records at the time!

Impulse, 1961/1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Stellar work from Curtis Fuller in the early 60s – 2 great Impulse efforts in a single set! Soul Trombone is an excellent hard bop session that has Fuller's firey trombone matched with a hard swingin' group that includes Freddie Hubbard, Cedar Walton, and Jimmy Heath. The whole thing ...

Impulse, Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Chico's classic recordings for Impulse, and a weird batch of tracks that have an off-beat sound to them that's hard to categorize. The group includes Ernie Hayes on organ, Arnie Lawrence on alto, Larry Coryell on guitar, and a guest appearance by Archie Shepp on piano. Tracks include " ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Lionel HamptonYou Better Know It !!! ... CD
Impulse/GRP, 1964. Used ... Out Of Stock
A warm and wonderful 60s session from Lionel Hampton – recorded in a personal and intimate way, one that even surpasses his great small combo sides of the 50s! There's a relaxed feel here that you don't always get with Hamp – a gently grooving quality that we really like a lot, and ... (Jazz) read more CD

A beautiful album of dark-hued vocals – sung by Johnny Hartman with a quality that's as smokey as the image of him with a cigarette on the cover! The album set a whole new standard for male vocal jazz in the 60s – and is a distillation and refinement of earlier ideas in music by Billy ... (Vocalists) read more CD

Coleman HawkinsDesafinado ... CD
Impulse, 1964. Used ... $6.99
The Hawk, in prime late form, lays down some beautiful tenor solos over gentle bossa nova accompaniment – working in a mode that's much more satisfying than just a "classic player meets bossa" session, angularly crafting the solos with that dark edge that he had in all of his later ...
