William Emanuel Huddleston, or more commonly known as Yusef Lateef, was and always will be a pillar of 20th century jazz.
The monumental figure sadly passed away in 2013, but the spirit of his music will always live on; he was a musician who continuously changed the game, a man who saw no boundaries to the possibilities of jazz music.
A talented flutist and saxophonist, he made those instruments his own thanks to a very singular, improvisational approach, and this legendary recording from 1966 at London's Ronnie Scott's is a timeless piece of music. Darting in and out of solos, then back onto more stable grooves, and breaking off into mystical terrains, this is a wonderful recording that deserves to be on a any serious jazz collector's shelf.
