Yusef Lateef (b. 1920), a multi-instrumentalist who is equally skilled on tenor saxophone, flute, and oboe, is also a multiculturalist whose musical interests have long gone beyond jazz, a word he disdains. An innovator in mixing world music influences into jazz, Lateef is in his own musical category.

Yusef Lateef was my favorite artist in the 70's and these are 2 of his best albums.
With musicians like - Bernard Purdie, Richard Tee, Chuck Rainey and Albert Heath.
Excellent sound -highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Suite 16 June 15, 2014
By Torino
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Is my favorite of the two albums in this CD mostly because of the recognizable songs: "When A Man Loves A Women" and "Michelle". I like Yusef's instrumental versions of them, but the other cuts are good too. His use of other instruments, flutes in particular, together with standard jazz instruments is a welcomed addition. Nothing dramatic, sort of laid back instrumental jazz circa 1969 - 70 with a slight international flavor.
