YUSEF LATEEF - CLUB DATE
Yusef Lateef for Impulse from 1964.
Bass - Ernie Farrow; Drums - James Black ;Piano - Mike Nock ;Saxophone [Tenor], Flute, Oboe - Yusef Lateef ;Trumpet - Richard Williams ; Producer - Bob Thiele
Recorded at Pep's Lounge, Philadelphia, Pa. June 29, 1964. Unreleased until 1976.
This features the old Dingwalls raver "Brother John" but every cuts a cracker on it - highly recommended.
The group features some amazing piano from Mike Nock vamping and grooving along at a pace that brings out the best in Lateef's reeds and the shimmering trumpet of Richard Williams and the record combines all of Lateef's exotic work on flute and saxes with a groove that you'll hardly hear on other albums.
320 rip assembled from the Live at Peps cds.
