25CD set chronicles the iconic jazz imprint through lovingly restored highlights. Each of these twenty-five classic impulse! albums tells the story of a record label that played a major role in taking jazz through a turbulent musical decade of the 1960s and on into the early years of the next decade. It features albums from a diverse range of artists, as well as some of the greatest names in jazz – Dizzy Gillespie, Art Blakey, Quincy Jones, Benny Carter, Charles Mingus, McCoy Tyner, Keith Jarrett and of course, John Coltrane.
