Tribute to John Coltrane and Impulse! Records
IMPULSE! Records 50th Anniversary Exhibit
comes to Jazz Heritage Center's Lush Life Gallery
in San Francisco
This exhibition celebrates the 50th anniversary of Impulse with iconic album covers and images of musical history giants captured by legendary photographer Chuck Stewart's camera. These images tell the label's story as vividly as its music does.
From the very beginning, artwork was a major component in the identity of Impulse Records. When producer Creed Taylor laid out his vision for the label in late 1960, before any records had been released, he set a visual standard to match the music: laminated gatefold covers rich in colorful graphic design, distinctive typography and magnificent photography. The label launched in early 1961 with its own slogan: "The New Wave Of Jazz Is On Impulse!" Creed Taylor and his successor Bob Thiele fulfilled that promise in a variety of musical directions. Albums with well-defined concepts and cutting edge music were the label's forte.
The exhibit will run from September 29 October 23 at the Jazz Heritage Center's Lush Life Gallery, 1320 Fillmore St., San Francisco CA 94115. The Jazz Heritage Center is located in the famed Fillmore District of San Francisco with it's own lauded musical history, and has been open since 2007. The Center has hosted many fine exhibitions, most recently the very successful "Presenting Bill Graham" exhibit which was extended several times due to overwhelming demand.
