RIP Yusef Lateef

Sad to hear the news that Yusef Lateef died. But what a blessing to have lived 93 years. He was one of favorite players. The soul he brought to songs. Not many players had as much soul and could jam so hard at the same time. Here’s one of my favorites from him: a 22-minute epic:

Samba de Amor (Fantasy): Samba de Amor (Part I)/Time Montage/Samba de Amor (Part II)” (Bob Cunningham)
