Legendary Impulse Label Gets Historical Treatment

“If you browsed through record stores in the 1960s and ’70s, it was easy to spot albums from Impulse Records. The label’s distinctive orange-and-black packaging stood out. So did the music.

“Although it’s been mostly forgotten today, Impulse! Records was one of the most influential labels in jazz. It featured the likes of Count Basie, Charles Mingus, Sonny Rollins and John Coltrane.

“Music journalist Ashley Kahn has written a new book about Impulse — The House That Trane Built. The label started as an edgy, experimental unit of entertainment giant ABC-Paramount in 1960 during a golden age for jazz.”
