Impulse! Records was an American based jazz record label, originally launched in 1960 by Creed Taylor as a subsidiary of ABC-Paramount Records in New York City. John Coltranewas Impulse!’s first major signing and the label came to be known in retrospect as “the house that Trane built”. 
Impulse! releases are known for their distinctive design, dominated by black and orange on the sleeve spine and record label. Impulse! LPs had a distinctive, sparse back cover design with the slogan, “The New Wave of Jazz is on IMPULSE!”. The company is perhaps best remembered as a free jazz label. New recordings from the label ceased in the late 1970s, but ABC-Paramount Records kept putting out reissues of classic albums until the company was sold to MCA Records in 1979.*
