Every Village Has a Song-The Yusef Lateef Anthology (1994)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Lead Performance: Yusef Lateef; Genre: Jazz

Yusef Lateef Every Village Has a Song-The Yusef Lateef Anthology (Rhino) Mystical and playful, Lateef resists categorization. This collection of 23 tracks featuring his work on flute, sax, oboe, and other instruments (recorded between 1949 and '76) is welcome since he stopped playing clubs 13 years ago. And how can you not love a man who had the nerve to overdub a sax solo on the Revelers' beloved 1927 recording ''In a Little Spanish Town''? B+
