YUSEF LATEEF - TEN YEARS HENCE














Yusef Lateef for Atlantic from 1975
Dusty Groove :A spacious mid 70s set from Yusef Lateef -- with some numbers showing his more soaringly spiritual bent -- and others hewing towards a more bluesy or loosely funky vein. Tracked live in San Francisco, some numbers were later augmented with overdubbed strings and vocals there's some nicely thumping elements of earthy percussion, loose moments, and quiet passages that sometimes build slowly, and at others change abruptly for maximum impact. The set features several longer selections, including the suite divided "Samba De Amor" in three sections, plus "Yusef's Mood" and "I Be Cold" all approach or crossing the 20 minute mark -- plus nice takes on "But Beautiful" and " A Flower". The group features Kenny Barron on piano and cowbell, Bob Cunningham on bass and bells, Albert Kuumba Heath on percussion and flute, and Bill Salter on bass alongside Lateef whose working with tenor sax, flutes, oboe, thumb piano and percussion
320 rip.

O caso da promiscuidade das entidades que têm sustentado a manutenção do stand sucateira ilegal também é um caso de polícia e de autoridades que terão que ser investigadas por outras.

Bacoso rules! I've been so longing for that one: used to have it on vinyl but lost with some friend. Nevermind, music is in the air, only listening needs your heart & time…

alex said...

super duper drop bacoso!
big thanks man!

I've been listening to this album quite a bit lately. I have a question concerning the first cut: Is the jarring Time Montage a studio thing, or was that a sudden turn during the concert date? For some reason my ears can't parse it out. I know Lateef liked to sneak in What the??? moments, like with Hey Jude, but if it was a studio addition, then he possibly spliced it over the top of what could have been a good drum solo...?

Never should have sold this back when--thanks for the 2nd chance to hear this!

wow - a post from '08 that's still (mostly) available for this great lp!

The second link works but the first gives an error that the owner of the link hasn't enabled the download option. Any chance for intervening? It's the first side of the LP that I'm really after here!

Many thanks Bosco! I found your site while looking for this album. Can't wait to check more of it out.

cheers
