YUSEF LATEEF - THE GOLDEN FLUTE
















Yusef Lateef for Impulse from 1965.
Features the killer cut "Headhunters"
The emphasis is on older tunes and styles on this Yusef Lateef Impulse! album. Lateef (switching between tenor, flute, and oboe) plays such numbers as "Straighten Up and Fly Right," "Ghost of a Chance," "Exactly like You" (on oboe), and "Rosetta" along with some group originals. Lateef has long been a true original, and he revitalizes the standards while always swinging and being a bit unpredictable. Well worth searching for, this was Lateef's final Impulse! album before switching to Atlantic.
Scott Yanow AMG.
320 rip from the Verve 2004 cd reissue.

Thanks for sharing this Lateef album. I've been trying to find it on lp for years. It seems every copy I see is trashed. Someday, man someday.

Fantastic! Love this album so much, and I only have it in a dubious 192K rip. You rule so hard, over and over again.

Thanks a bunch; I've had the LP of this forever, but it sits at my folks' at present, glad to have the music, never mind in good quality.
