Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

During the last half century, Yusef Lateef has successively reinvented himself as a swing-era tenor, world-music pioneer, and orchestral composer. Now 32 Jazz has reissued the cream of his Atlantic recordings on The Man with the Big Front Yard. This three-disc set offers a superb look at Lateef's quick-change artistry. A cut like "Kongsberg" finds the saxophonist in a hard-bop mood, leading an able quartet through his own gospel-flavored composition. Elsewhere Lateef deploys a bigger, funkier ensemble--indeed, the 1969 sessions originally issued as Yusef Lateef's Detroit feature percolating performances by the likes of pianist Eric Gale and Bernard Purdie. And a delicate arrangement of "Come Sunday," which spotlights the leader's flute alongside Kermit Moore's cello, anticipates the chamber music that this protean artist would produce throughout the 1970s. --James Marcus

Review

The music [on this 3-CD set] is commercial, aimed at R&B as well as jazz audiences. On The Complete a few tracks have something in common with the work of Ray Charles's band. Detroit has a very obvious R&B component and Hush has a gospel influence. Unfortunately, there are just too many undistinguished funk tracks here which don't give Lateef a chance to play creatively. -- Jazz Times

Compiles four LPs that Yusef Lateef released on Atlantic Records at a bargain price. Sound quality is good. Amazon needs to make more selections like this available for budget-minded music collectors.

no
This is one guy who can make my head spin like only a handful of musicians ever did, but not here.
This to me sounds like a jam session, nothing more. He is repetitive, playing licks instead of letting his heart go -just so you understand what i mean, listen to the track 'Don't blame me' on 'Eastern Sounds': Don't Blame Me
On 'The Man with the big Frontyard' i feel some basic things are missing, like imagination and intuition (Lateef and the piano player are not connected at all). If i could, i'd give this one back.
