  1. Call it envy, call it hubris, but I think Impulse as a label, while able to justify itself as part of a pantheon of good music put out fince its inception, is absolutely angry that they don t get teh props of Blue Note Jazz musicians, recording for a multitude of labels, probably kept the two from being a Motown Stax level of animosity, but this book reads as a Impulse cheering section and ignorant of the other elephants in the room of jazz labels, most notably Blue Note.This book really reads l [...]


  2. Took me forever to get back to reading this one The stories were bland and to my mind does not hold a candle to the level of artistry this label is beholden to These are great artistsColtrane, Pharoah Sanders, Gabor Sabo, Ray Charles, Archie Shepp, Eric Dolphy, Freddie Hubbard, the list goes on and on I enjoyed the album highlights featured throughout the book but I just had a difficult time maintaining interest by the time I reached the halfway point I have a couple chapters left that I may or [...]


  3. Si Coltrane es la deidad que teje el cosmos, Impulse es el cosmos mismo Lectura trepidante que requiere volver una y otra vez sobre las anotaciones y escarbar entre la documentaci n que ofrece Ashley Kahn.


  4. A enjoyable read for any fan of modern Jazz Kahn also notable for his book on the making of Miles _Kind of Blue_ is an unabashed devotee of jazz, and particularly of post bop and 60s jazz His decision to cover the swift changes in that world through the framework of Impulse records is a wise one, as it allows him to link creative currents and innovations to an underlying analysis of the business side of jazz Kahn has interviewed as many of the surviving jazz icons and AR and label men as seems h [...]



  5. The House That Trane Built is the story of Impulse Records and the imprint it left not just on the jazz world but music as a whole.Kahn has written other fantastic books about the creation of legendary jazz albums Kind of Blue and A Love Supreme This book is a complimenting addition to that list.Although I would have enjoyed it if Kahn fully made the book about the albums that transformed the label as I felt they were the stronger part of the book.


  6. This book seems to chronicle every single thing that ever happened It makes for of a catalog than a story But I did learn some things.


  7. This was a good overview of the label that included some illuminating details Pharoah Sanders was Impulse s best seller but I wish it had about Ayler and Sun Ra.


  8. Impulse records, the final and perhaps definitive, record label of John Coltrane, was the premier jazz record label from the late fifties through the late sixties This carefully researched book traces the history of the label up through its demise in the mid seventies although it would return later and still exists as a functioning label today , with particular focus on the influence of John Coltrane.Like most books about music or musicians, the most interesting part is the early days when Creed [...]


  9. A great insight into a legendary label As if it needs saying, if you aren t familiar with Impulse already, this book is not for you It is best read if you have familiarity with some of the music that came out of the label, because the value of this book is primarily in hearing the stories behind the music For me, that meant that the second half of the book was less enjoyable than the first I don t know Gato Barbieri and Keith Jarrett the way I know John Coltrane and Oliver Nelson, so those stori [...]


  10. Very readable I d give it 3.5 stars if allowed that The pros Kahn treats the subject from an interesting perspective the story of several producers, with Bob Thiele being the main though sometimes flawed hero of the story The book provides some good solid research on the figure of the producer, which is topic deserving attention in the study of jazz.The cons the inevitable love fest Kahn has with the Impulse label, and the rather transparent way that the book serves as a long advertisement for [...]


  11. One of the three greatest jazz books ever written, easily Kahn lists every chapter by landmark Impulse Records album, of which there are many, and simply lets the musicians talk about the recording sessions, the budget for the record, the promotion put into the record, all the unglamorous stuff and it reads amazingly well And who could believe Archie Shepp couldn t get signed until John Coltrane made one little phone call


  12. A decent overview from an obviously passionate author The book remains rather distant and fails to engage many of the releases beyond a few anecdotes and doesn t investigate any of the artists beyond a cursory glance with the exception of the Coltranes That being said, it was an easy read that helped fill in a few info holes in my knowledge and made me even curious of the spaces that were left untouched or were barely touched.


  13. Another nice piece by Ashley Kahn, filled with loads of rare memorabilia, advertising copy, and anecdotal material about the Impulse story I think it should interest most listeners, but will appeal especially to those hardcore Impulse fans Of course Coltrane gets mentioned a lot apparently the sale of his work keeps the lights on at Impulse I m also happy that the book is in a larger size with a hard cover.


  14. An interesting look at one of the most iconic labels of the 1960 s jazz landscape, a label which owed much of its success to John Coltrane Doesn t go into huge amounts of detail of the behind the scenes stuff, but it talks about the important artists releases, and has plenty of great photos Nice layout too For fans of the label, its great, but you would probably know quite a bit of the things covered anyway.


  15. Absolutely fantastic In it s day, Impulse Records commanded the kind of brand loyalty that was usually reserved for indie rock labels like 4AD, I.R.S and SST in the 80 s and SubPop and Thrill Jockey in the 90 s This history of the label reminds us why the musical landscape in general would be much different today were it not for Impulse, and why the 60 s and early 70 s were considered the final apex for the development of Jazz.


  16. This was an excellent book for anyone interested in the history of jazz in its critical period from the late 1950s to the 1980s Impulse was a legendary record label that had an amazing influence on the music The book is very thoroughly researched.


  17. This was a well researched book about the ups, downs and in betweens of Impulse Records Striking the right blend of being informative without being snooze inducing, it s a great volume for any jazz enthusiast.


  18. A really engaging and enjoyable trawl through the history of Impulse Records I like how there were in depth discussions of key albums from the label s catalog inserted between the main narrative Walked away from this with a long list of new albums to check out, always a good sign.


  19. It is fascinating to me to hear about the history of a record label This book is well written and explains a lot of things I didn t know It also has caused me to go back and listen carefully to some of the music.


  20. The nature of this meant it was a bit thin and safe a bit like the modern style of documentary where everything is laid out with relentless foreshadowing Good to discover some hidden stuff on Impulse, though.



  21. This is much better than his hagiography on John Coltrane s _A Love Supreme_ Kahn s research is thorough and details the rise and fall of a intriguing record label.





  22. Excellent read for Coltrane and jazz fans in general Impulse was an amazing label in the 1960s and into the 70s.


  23. A must have for any jazz enthusiast The story of the most legendary jazz label and how a man could build the myth from the ashes.


  24. An interesting story behind the record label and its star performer John Coltrane I always find it fascinating to hear the inner workings and forces behind the greats of the music industry.


  25. What a fantastic and compelling journey through the life and times of Impulse Records It makes me wish I had unlimited funds so that I could purchase all this great music on vinyl.
