Mel BrownChicken Fat ... CD
Impulse, 1967. Used ... $9.99
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 ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Ray CharlesGenius + Soul = Jazz/My Kind Of Jazz ... CD
Impulse, 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
We might argue with the mathematics in the title – or at least joke that Ray was using equations as titles years before Anthony Braxton – but you can't contest the fact that this one's a classic treat, and a legendary attempt to class up Ray's bluesy style for the masses. Quincy Jones ... (Soul) read more CD

Impulse, 2004. Used ... Out Of Stock
Mindblowing work from Alice Coltrane – an album of incredible beauty that easily sits with the best of her classic early recordings for Impulse!

An album that's quite different than you might expect from the title – one of the most adventurous records issued on Impulse during the life of John Coltrane! The tracks here are all quite free and far-reaching – hardly the mellow "meditations you might expect – and more the ... (Jazz) read more CD

Impulse (Japan), 1964. Used Gatefold ... $29.99
A really nice little session from Terry Gibbs – a rare one-off album for Impulse, and a straight jazz record that stands out from some of Terry's more gimmick-oriented albums of the 60s!

Impulse, 1963. Used ... $9.99
Paul Gonsalves tells it the way it is – but in a hiply swinging sort of way that showcases his rising star as a leader in the 60s!

Eddie HarrisEddie Who? (Impulse) ... CD
Impulse, 1986. Used ... $14.99
A great later date from Eddie Harris – only a trio set, but one that often has all the full, soulful currents of some of the reedman's 70s material for Atlantic Records!

Johnny HartmanI Just Dropped By To Say Hello (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1963. Used Gatefold ... $24.99
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!

Coleman HawkinsDesafinado ... CD
Impulse, 1964. Used ... Just Sold Out!
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 ...

✨✧ Johnny HodgesEverybody Knows Johnny Hodges (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Impulse, 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A nice little 60s album by Johnny Hodges – one of the few post-Verve sessions that has him still playing in the hard swinging Ellingtonia small combo mode of the 50s!
