Yusef Lateef at Ronnie Scott's

How is this? Is it a bootleg or legit?

I wonder if there are tapes of Hank Mobley there...

Bertrand.

Not heard this one but it is from that fine Gearbox label in London and is legit. The tapes, I believe, were from the Les Tomkins archive.

Definitely legit as Sidewinder says. It's a good listen, Lateef on fine form on a variety of instruments. Ronnies house band acquit themselves well

On Spotify in UK to sample

I never saw Yusef at Ronnie's, but spotted him crossing nearby Leicester Square during one of his visits. Pretty distinctive figure, with saxophone case, beret and unmistakable nose.

It's a good release. Sound is decent bearing in mind it's age and the simplicity of the equipment used.

Not that it matters a whole lot, but where is it written that Gearbox is paying the artists for these recordings? I believe that this recording is technically in the public domain in the EU, so there is no reason that Gearbox would have to contact the estate or make any payments. I'd be pleased to find out that they do.
