Africa/Brass is John Coltrane’s eighth studio album, released in 1961 on Impulse! Records, catalogue A-6. The sixth release for the fledgling label and Coltrane's first for Impulse!, it features Coltrane's working quintet augmented by a larger ensemble to bring the total number of participating musicians to 21. Established in 1960 by producer Creed Taylor as a subsidiary of ABC-Paramount Records, Impulse! Records was an American jazz record label based in Santa Monica. John Coltrane was among Impulse!'s first signings and thanks to his critical and economic successes, the label came to be known in retrospect as "the house that Trane built."
This CD was purchased used at Other Music in New York City. It moved with me from Brooklyn to Queens, from the Waterpod to Manhattan. It is currently with me in Brooklyn.
