Famous jazz label Impulse! Records has announced a new release campaign to celebrate the company’s 60th anniversary. The first round of titles includes a best of box set and an Alice Coltrane album, which never got widespread. More will follow. The label’s efforts also include an album-oriented video series featuring the first episode of John Coltrane’s A Love Supreme – see below.
The label’s first anniversary rate is Impulse! Records: Music, Message & The Moment, a 4xLP boxed set that covers the heyday of Quincy Jones, Alice and John Coltrane, Archie Shepp, Pharoah Sanders, Albert Ayler and others in the 1960s and 1970s.
Turiya Sings, an album of devotional music by Alice Coltrane, which was previously only available at the Ashram, will be released this summer.
A 1968 Thelonious Monk concert recording released as Palo Alto last year will also receive a vinyl edition for Record Store Day in June.
