jazz http://wwno.org en The New Thing In Jazz, Revisited http://wwno.org/post/new-thing-jazz-revisited Impulse Records is the legendary label that proudly delivered the "new thing" in jazz in the 1960s: avant-garde records from the likes of <a href="http://www.npr.org/artists/15394783/john-coltrane" target="_blank">John Coltrane</a> and Pharaoh Sanders. It also helped jazz cross over to a larger audience; quite a few flower children bought Impulse albums.<p>But over time, the new thing got old. Impulse went dormant for nearly a decade.
