During the exciting and rapid changes of the 1960s and 1970s, Impulse Records was the sound of jazz tradition and the shape of jazz to come - edgy, soulful and elegantly packaged. With a line-up led by John Coltrane that also included Sonny Rollins, Charles Mingus, Duke Ellington and Keith Jarrett, among many others, Impulse was one of the most significant, ground-breaking and enduringly influential labels in the history of recorded music. In The House That Trane Built, Ashley Kahn recounts the story of this unusual and fascinating company, tracing its nearly two-decade arc of artistic triumphs and unlikely marketing coups. Drawing on extensive archival research and interviews with over fifty musicians, industry executives and producers, The House That Trane Built features over one hundred lavish illustrations, as well as thirty-six album profiles detailing the inside stories of some of the most enduring jazz recordings of all time.
