| Impulse! Records Kicks Off Its 50th Anniversary Commemoration With Release of First Impulse: The Creed Taylor Collection
In 2011, Impulse Records will mark two major milestones: the label’s 50th anniversary, and the 85th anniversary of John Coltrane’s birth. Coltrane, who inspired Impulse’s nickname The House That Trane Built, is arguably the greatest artist in the label’s storied history.
FIRST HALF: Performing selections from John Coltrane, Duke Ellington, Freddie Hubbard, and of course, Eric Reed, are: Eric Reed, (piano, musical director); Jim Rotondi (trumpet); Andre Hayward (trombone); Danny Kirkhum (trombone); Seamus Blake (tenor saxophone); Stacy Dillard (tenor saxophone); Rodney Whitaker (bass); Willie Jones III (drums); and Andy Bey (vocals).
SECOND HALF: Reggie Workman’s African-American Legacy Project (AALP), a 17 piece orchestra and 16 chorus celebration, will feature Reggie Workman (bassist), Charles Tolliver (Conductor/Arranger), and Stanley Cowell (pianist) performing “unique orchestra/chorus transcriptions” of Coltrane’s historic Africa Brass by CharlesTolliver and Reggie Workman’s own homage to Coltrane “Martyr’s Hymn.”
There will be a free pre-concert discussion with Ashley Kahn, author of The House That Trane Built: Impulse Records, nightly at 7pm.
