In earlier books, Ashley Kahn wove narratives from iconic jazz albums, including John Coltrane’s A Love Supreme. In The House That Trane Built he focuses on Impulse Records, the label behind that masterpiece and works by everyone from Ray Charles to Keith Jarrett. Trane stars again, with producer Bob Thiele, in ”the unlikely tale of a musician who led and a producer who trusted instinct and learned to follow.” Kahn correctly casts Impulse as ”an inherent part of the velocity” of the ’60s, ”keeping pace with — and at times predicting — the sound and politics that lay ahead.” Though at times breathless, Kahn balances high art and pop culture without breaking rhythm.
