Various Artists
Impulse Records: Music, Message And The Moment
Catalogue Number
Release Date
May 14, 2021


Impulse!, the legendary label behind the 20th century's most vital spiritual jazz — much of which provided the US civil rights movement with a deep, heavy and certainly world-changing soundtrack at one with the cosmic justice of the universe — release a staggeringly comprehensive overview of the music that would shape revolutionary politics for decades to come. Music, Message And The Moment features the undisputed greats of music from beyond the spheres of earthly jazz. It’s all here; the Coltranes’ searching psychedelia, the maniacal skronk of Pharaoh Sanders and Albert Ayler, and an outstanding slice of big band lusciousness from a young Quincy Jones.
