5.0 out of 5 stars A fine showcase for Yusef Lateef's tenor saxophone playing., 27 Jun 2006

This review is from: Contemplation (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
This review is from: Contemplation (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.
