Yusef Lateef (b. 1920), a multi-instrumentalist who is equally skilled on tenor saxophone, flute, and oboe, is also a multiculturalist whose musical interests have long gone beyond jazz, a word he disdains. An innovator in mixing world music influences into jazz, Lateef is in his own musical category.

Originally an altoist, Lateef switched to tenor while in high school. He worked early ... Read more in Amazon's Yusef Lateef Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Jazz 24 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Wonderful sounds from the late sixties & a great additon to my collection.
My only gripe is even if this is a bargain basement priced CD is that there aint no personel of the line ups on the sleave notes.
This shows a disregard for the punters who bought the CD and disrespect for the great guys blowing behinde Yusef Lateef.
As jazz was my first religion as I wonder how these muscians could come up with such intricate melodies spontaneously.
Its a bit like reading the Bible & noticing Jesus doing a solo but forgeting the sidesmen Disciples.
Who where the guys blowing freely on this compilation behind Yusef Lateef?
But besides this gripe the sounds are wonderful.

3.0 out of 5 stars MIS NOMER 20 Nov 2010
By John M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
According to information recieved from a potential seller the title of this CD should be The Best Of Yusef Lateef - The Atlantic Years, a compilation that Atlantic Records declined to put on CD themselves. It is not the very early Lateef Savoy session Jazz For The Thinker available only in the 4 CD box set.
