This album is widely acknowledged as one of the crowning glories of Yusef Lateef's career, and it is easy to see why. An eastern influence does permeate much of the material, but it is no gimmick. Yusef Lateef made a study of exotic scales and he knew how to use them without it sounding in the least bit contrived. The eclecticism of both the tunes and the instrumentation (Lateef plays the Chinese globular flute on one track and an oboe on another) works because of a clear unity of purpose which is apparent throughout the album. Accessibility is balanced against innovation and the result is immensely rewarding.

Had the vinyl for years finally it gave up the ghost. I got this CD. Not as mellow a sound as vinyl but still a wonderful timeless album.

Format: Audio CD
This quartet session was originally recorded for the PRESTIGE MOODSVILLE label in New Jersey on September 5, 1961 with the great multi-instrumentalist Yusef Lateef(tenor saxophone, oboe, flute); Barry Harris(piano) Ernie Farrow(bass, rebab) & Lex Humphries(drums).
Lateef was exploring Eastern music well before John Coltrane and several of his exotic compositions are presented here. Highlights are 'The Plum Blossom' featuring the five-note clay flute, his oboe playing on 'Blues For The Orient' and Lateef's hard-driving tenor saxophone on 'Snafu'.
'Eastern Sounds' is a beautiful and varied album which displays Lateef's wide-ranging musical talents.

Lateef does not have much original to say on this album and nor do his accompanists. He plays, in a desultory way, with 'exotic' scales and harmonies, but to little purpose.
