"Five Stars ... not all the music on this album is excellent ... but some is more than excellent."
- DownBeat

"Coltrane was uncompromising in his vision during these four nights. These performances can be considered the beginning of Coltrane's musical research that would consume him for the rest of his life ... so potent and important is John Coltrane's place in the history of jazz, no serious jazz fan can ignore him ... exists as a monument to his sheer force of will in the face of harsh criticism, the definition of a true prophet or visionary."
- All About Jazz

Impressions contains two studio tracks paired with two live songs left over from the same November 1961 recordings that yielded John Coltrane's very successful Live At The Village Vanguard. There was too much material for one LP so the music had to be divided up, with this second album coming a year after the first. Coltrane expanded his usual lineup for the Village Vanguard performances with the addition of Eric Dolphy on alto saxophone and bass clarinet, which opened up new opportunities for the front line. All About Jazz ranked the set of Village Vanguard recordings at number two on its list of the 10 best live jazz albums.

This album is a high-resolution digital transfer of material originating from an analogue recording. It may contain noise, distortion or other artifacts, and may also contain audio which is limited in bandwidth and dynamic range, due to the technology available at the time of its original creation. As such, it is offered as a high-resolution documentation of a historical release.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
