The most exciting jazz of the 1960’s and ‘70’s wore orange and black, 
the colors made famous by Impulse Records. In its heyday, Impulse 
forged an unmistakable identity based on eye-catching design and shrewd 
marketing, along with truly extraordinary music. Electic and 
adventurous, Impulse’s catalog ranged from swing to the avant-garde; 
envelope-pushing recordings by Sonny Rollins, Charles Mingus, Pharoah 
Sanders, McCoy Tyner, Keith Jarrett and Archie Shepp helped define the 
spiritual soundtrack of the era, while timeless titles by Count Basie, 
Art Blakey, Duke Ellington, Johnny Hartman, Benny Carter, Coleman 
Hawkins, Ben Webster, Johnny Hodges passionately affirmed jazz 

But it was the singular relationship that developed between John 
Coltrane and Impulse Records that defined the spirit and sound of 
Impulse, and gave this book its title, The House That Trane Built:  the 
Story of Impulse Records.  Join author, Ashley Kahn, Marsalis Music 
consultant, Bob Blumenthal and saxophonist, David Liebman in an 
informal discussion of John Coltrane, Impulse Records and the legendary 
music the label produced.
