Yusef LateefBlue Yusef Lateef (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Atlantic/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $36.99
One of our favorite Atlantic albums by the great Yusef Lateef – an incredible session that has him dipping back into his earlier exotic roots with those great reed styles of the early 60s – yet also hitting a mix of soul and funk like some of his other albums from the time! The sound ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Yusef LateefClub Date ... LP
Impulse, 1964/1976. Very Good+ ... $19.99
One of the greatest albums ever from Yusef Lateef – even if it's sometimes overlooked! The album was issued in the 70s, but it features material from the famous Live At Pep's concert in 1964 – but which didn't appear on that initial record. In fact, it's arguably a lot hipper than ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Yusef LateefDoctor Is In & Out ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
One of Yusef Lateef's funkier albums for Atlantic – and a record that features some great keyboard work from Kenny Barron!

Atlantic/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $36.99
One of the greatest Yusef Lateef albums on Atlantic Records – and that's saying a lot, given the high level of quality he was hitting at the label!

Impulse, 1964. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $24.99
One of Yusef Lateef's most fantastic records, and an album that grooves in a way that few of his other ones do. Recorded live in 1964, this material was part of the same session that comprised the classic Club Date LP, which included the track "Brother John" (not on this album).

Prestige, 1957. Very Good ... $18.99
A beautifully haunting set by Yusef that marked his move to Prestige, and a sophistication of the Eastern-tinged jazz style that he developed during his years with Savoy.

Yusef Lateef's Detroit is a mighty funky one – a great summation of all the soulful sounds he'd crafted on previous records, but with a full groove that really points the way towards the 70s! Lateef's reeds are still the main attraction – great solos on tenor and flute – but ... read more CD

Stellar reed work from Azar Lawrence – a player who's best known for his acoustic revival in recent years, but who could play with some excellent electric backings during the 70s!
