Released on the Impulse label in a gatefold sleeve, "Impressions" is John Coltrane’s seventh album, which brings together recordings made between 1961 and 1963. The two live numbers "India" and "Impressions", recorded during »evenings in Hell« (as Rudy Van Gelder called the smoke-filled Village Vanguard), are the highpoints of the LP. Although he only had a mixing console and a tape recorder placed on two tables next to the stage, Van Gelder managed to make full-bodied, intensive recordings of the quintet. Dolphy plays the bass clarinet in "India" and the alto saxophone in "Impressions"; the result is a new sound colouring, which demands that Coltrane perform with even greater expression.
