Yusef Lateef

Yusef Lateef was a multifaceted musician who eschewed the term "jazz" because he thought it was too limiting and did not represent the music he was trying to bring forth. Lateef died in December at 93 after a long and productive life. This program features some of his work as a leader and as a sideman with Charles Mingus and Cannonball Adderley.
