For over 60 years, Impulse Records has stood as a label of musical integrity and lasting cultural significance.

Known as the “house that Trane built” in honour of its best-selling artist John Coltrane, the label produced music exciting in its experimental charge, and spiritual in its priority. Sonny Rollins, Quincy Jones, Max Roach, Ray Charles, Alice Coltrane, Keith Jarrett, Charles Mingus, Sun Ra, and Pharoah Sanders were but a few of the legendary musicians who helped define the label's sound and message. To this day, Impulse continues to proudly wear its distinctive orange-and-black colour scheme, and is home to the new vanguard of creative musicians including Brandee Younger, Shabaka Hutchings and Irreversible Entanglements.
