It's fantastic isn't it? I knew of him in name but only started discovering his work sometime last year. I've only scratched the surface so far, but what an incredible talent. "The Blue Yusef Lateef" that this song is from is excellent, though I've got to recommend "Yusef Lateef's Detroit: Latitude 42° 30' Longitude 83° from 1969. It's not often I get blown away by hearing something new to my ears these days but this record floored me. It's essentially a jazz-funk record with elements of big band, such a wonderful sound.
