Impulse! Records

For more than fifty years, Impulse Records has stood as label of musical integrity and lasting cultural significance, having brought forth countless classic recordings that reflected —and spurred on—the political and cultural shifts of the world around it. Dedicated from the outset to the full range of jazz styles, Impulse was born in 1961 as part of the ABC Records family, and quickly came to follow the lead of its best-selling artist John Coltrane—producing music exciting in its experimental charge, and spiritual in its priority. Sonny Rollins, Quincy Jones, Max Roach, Ray Charles, Alice Coltrane, Keith Jarrett, Charles Mingus, Sun Ra, and Pharoah Sanders were but a few of the legendary musicians who helped define the label's sound and message

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
