The "Unmixed" portion of the title refers to the companion set, Impulsive! Revolutionary Jazz Reworked, in which turntablists take interesting liberty with these ten tracks by scrambling them up and feeding them back into the digital age. No matter what your feelings concerning remixing experimentation, rest assured that Impulsive! Unmixed is a well-chosen primer collection for the jazz novice and a great-sounding disc for the completist.
