A sampler, but oh, so much more than that!
This is effectively a sampler for Impulse! records, featuring music from their royal family (the Coltranes) but with deserved inclusions from other greats like Charles Mingus and Art Blakey. The record is a great way of enjoying the contrasts between the raw jazz of Coltrane's Love Supreme (with Acknowledgement Part 1 included) against the funky soulful "Hard Work" of John Handy, if you bought it only for the underappreciated Oliver Nelson's "Stolen Moments" you wouldn't have wasted £7.99. It's a very satisfying way of filling up a playlist quickly with music that many have in an old, dusty, perhaps whisky stained vinyl collection!
