Format:Audio CD
The multi-instrumentalist Yusef Lateef concentrates exclusively on tenor saxophone for this excellent quintet session recorded for VEE JAY during April, 1960 with Nat Adderley(trumpet), Barry Harris(piano), Sam Jones(bass) & Louis Hayes(drums).
Lateef is in magnificent form on these 11 tracks(including 5 alternative takes) and the highlights are the leader's 'Hazing', Barry Harris's beautiful ballad 'I Need You' & Nat Adderley's 'Sassy Ann'.
'Contemplation' is a fine showcase for Lateef's underrated tenor playing and should appeal to anyone who enjoys soulful and swinging hard bop.

4.0 out of 5 stars Recording Date Please 22 Jun 2004
Format:Audio CD
How about telling us when it was recorded? Or how about who's on it? But really though, the recording date, even if just the year (1958?, 1978?) is vital editorial information. Please do better. I'm sure it's great though, as Yusef is KING.

4.0 out of 5 stars FULL BLOWN TENOR 12 Nov 2007
By John M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Yusef recorded many times for many labels from 1957-1970 but this one must have the best sound quality of them all. It's even better than that sideman date he did for Grant Green for Blue Note- GRANTSTAND. This is a Hard Bop session complete with a slow blues and original ballad. Nat Adderley is on trumpet and the rythem section is lead by Barry Harris on piano. Yusef plays only Tenor Sax on this session.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yusef Lateef's Contemplation: Hard Bop Magic. 21 April 2012
By Marks - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I must start off by echoing the comments of the previous reviewer. But while his review was full of praise, it was also cursory, and the session that produced this disc was so inspired that it deserves greater comment. First, it was originally released by Chicago's VJ label under the leadership of the drummer and entitled the Louis Hayes Quintet. The album was recorded in NYC on April 30, 1960. The session was littered with jazz talent. Anyone who has bought albums on the Blue Note label should know all the musicians represented. Barry Harris has a delicate touch at the keyboard. His presence on a session is always welcome. He is a master accompanist, who always provides a soloist with a solid harmonic foundation, and an adept soloist whose lines sparkle. Look for more of his brilliance on two of Dexter Gordon's Blue Note albums, Clubhouse and Gettin' Around. Nat Adderley, whom most will know from the quintet he led with his brother, adds astonishing cornet runs to this LP. He sounds fabulous. And to my ears, Yusef Lateef never sounded better on tenor than on this recording. His sound rivals Gordon's, and his musicianship while soloing demands attention. Sam Jones and Louis Hayes are a great rhythm section. They have both recorded hundreds of fine sessions, and their work always challenges and pleases. Five of the six tracks on the album are originals. For me, the standout performance is on Barry Harris's composition, I Need You, a slow ballad on which Harris and Lateef share the most sympathetic dialogue. Simply beautiful playing by all. The album was made when all the jazzmen were quite young, and it was also Hayes's first as a leader. Buy this disc, and you will want to further explore the discographies of all of these fine musicians. Highly recommended.

I liked this man's early work very much,I can remember seeing him in person in the 70's at Ronnie's in London. This album depicts his early style..
