Thelonious Monk
Palo Alto

Impulse! presents Palo Alto, a previously unreleased live recording by legendary jazz pianist Thelonious Monk, from a concert in October 1968 that came about in curious circumstances.

Charles Mingus
Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus

Despite being named Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus, a title that perhaps suggests a solo, Mingus-only effort, this 1964 record actually captures Charles Mingus’ experimentation with a large, 11 piece group, performing some of his finest tunes, including ‘Better Get Hit In Yo’ Soul’. Vinyl reissue on the Jeanne Dielman label.

John Coltrane
Blue World

First time release for five previously unissued recordings from famous jazz guy John Coltrane. The pieces were recorded for a Canadian animated film called The Cat In The Bag. Instead of using original recordings, Coltrane went into the studio and recorded new versions of older works for the project. Thing is, no-one thought to mention this and the film came out with original Coltrane work that had never been released. Until now that is.

Alice Coltrane
Journey In Satchidananda

Alice Coltrane is a jazz god. She was a graceful harpist and a superb trumpet player. Journey In Satchidananda, from 1970, sees her exploring the many-stringed axe bringing serenity, mysticism and spiritualism to the fore. Charlie Haden, known for his time in the game-changing Ornette Coleman Quartet, played bass. LP on Impulse.

Shabaka & The Ancestors
We Are Sent Here By History

Reed player Shabaka Hutchings is known for being the band leader in the highly rated jazz outfit Sons Of Kemet. Shabaka and the Ancestors, which finds Hutchings fronting a band of South African jazz players, released their debut album, Wisdom of Elders, in 2016. Here we have their much anticipated new one, We Are Sent Here By History, which deals with the weighty subject of human extinction. Powerful stuff.

John Coltrane
1963: New Directions

John Coltrane burned brilliantly brightly, if briefly; here are five of his best LPs. '1963: New Directions' brings together all of Coltrane's 1963 Impulse recordings, in the order in which they were laid down to tape. The year marked a transition point for Coltrane, he would go on to record 1964's 'Crescent' and 'A Love Supreme', of course. Available as a 5x LP box set and a 3x CD set and include artwork featuring original collages. On Impulse!

The Comet Is Coming
The Afterlife

The Afterlife is the new EP by jazz / funk / electronic band The Comet Is Coming. It follows on from their second LP Trust in The Lifeforce of the Deep Mystery. According to Keyboardist, Danalogue, the EP should be regarded as a companion piece to the album as the music comes from the same session, the same creative process.

The Comet Is Coming
Trust In The Lifeforce Of The Deep Mystery

On their latest LP the futuro-jazz trio The Comet Is Coming encourage us to Trust In The Lifeforce Of The Deep Mystery. Whether or not you think such a sentiment is sound advice is up to you, but one thing that we can all agree on is that this is another incendiary set of electrified saxophonic fare from Shabaka Hutchings et al (he's the one from Sons Of Kemet, by the way). Kate Tempest guests on ‘Blood Of The Past’.

John Coltrane
Both Directions at Once: The Lost Album

It's somewhat of a holy grail of jazz, this. Both Directions at Once: The Lost Album is just that, an until-very-recently unknown and unheard studio album by the great John Coltrane. The sessions for the LP were laid down at the legendary Van Gelder Studios, with 'Trane at the peak of his powers and his classic Quartet in tow. So, here we have a document from one of the most important and influential groups in the history of music-kind having scaled the pinnacles and subsequently veering in exploratory tangents the world couldn't have anticipated. LP, Double Deluxe Edition LP with CD and 2-CD deluxe editions available, on Impulse!
