The great Yusef Lateef was an important composer and tenor sax player that also contributed greatly in terms of bringing multi-instrumentalism {including “exotic” choices like the oboe and shehnai…} to jazz. He was also a major figure as far as incorporating “Eastern” sounds to Western music. Fundamentally, though, his massively full-toned, idiosyncratic tenor work alone catapults Yusef into the uppermost echelons.
