Spacious Ambient FREE Soundscapes!
Yusef Lateef is PHENOMENAL! This album is tranquil and peaceful yet, it is Very FREE and Creative in its timing and textures. I would urge you to check out Yusef's work with the Amazing Percussionist Adam Rudolph as well, as both have been playing for decades, and have consistently broken new ground and paved new paths in the realms of Avant-Garde Free Improv and World-Beat jazz Melting both Eastern and Western Modal Structures and Sounds, yet are often overlooked, type-cast or misunderstood by many, otherwise genius, fans of Creative Music. This Music is for your mind - both consciously and subconsciously and given a peaceful environment can easily put you into a Hypnotic Trance. 5 Stars All The Way! And Given the Fact That Yusef Lateef has Put Out Such A Wealth of Material Over The Last SIX Decades!, Let This Be Only The Start of Your Musical Journey of Discovery With This Creative Genius, For It WILL Be Rewarding At Every Turn!
