Yusef Lateef - The Complete Recordings 1959-1962

Yusef Lateef - The Complete Recordings 1959-1962


As the new decade approached, Yusef Lateefs 1950s output had established him as one of jazz musics most prominent innovators. His use of Eastern instrumentation alongside his signature saxophone and flute had aided him in crafting a sound that was purely his own, and not only would the coming years see Lateef produce an extraordinary catalogue of work as bandleader, but he would equally and generously lend his talents to recordings credited to other highly respected players.
Yusefs mastery of musical fusion came to a head with his final two Prestige albums: Eastern Sounds and Into Something (both 1961, released on Moodsville and New Jazz respectively). Although many of the recordings featured, blending jazz standards with blues and soundtrack formats alongside his own compositions, with a piano, bass and drums backing group, were in a commonplace format for jazz of the era, Lateefs own skill at improvisation and arrangement combined these elements into something entirely unique.
The early 1960s also saw him appear as sideman on albums by the likes of Charles Mingus and Art Blakey and as a permanent member of Cannonball Adderleys group between 1962 and 1964.
This four disc collection contains all eight albums recorded by Yusef Lateef as bandleader between the years 1959 and 1962, documenting as it does the period considered by cognoscenti and enthusiasts alike to be the defining era of this master musicians career. Capturing all at once the form, skill and genius that was Yusef Lateef, this boxed-set serves as unique testimony to a truly visionary artist.
