5 posts in this topic

Posting this week’s show, the first of a two-part tribute to Yusef Lateef, a bit early because today is his centenary. Mark Stryker, author of Jazz From Detroit (and well-known as a contributor to this forum) joins the program to talk about this key period in Lateef’s development as a musician:

There’ll be a sequel (tentatively scheduled for next month) that covers the 1960s, again with Mark as a guest.

Just listened, another great programme, thank you.  It's great to learn the context for such terrific music. Bring on the sequel!

Can i ask which release you were playing 'sounds of nature' from? was it the Fresh Sound compilation?

I’m not sure—I actually don’t have that album. A friend who does shared the digital file with me, but not sure if it was transferred from a CD or the original LP.  It’s unfortunate that the planned second set reissue of Lateef’s Savoy recordings never came to pass.
