Yusef Lateef-Atlantis Lullaby: The Concert From Avignon

Label: Elemental Music
Format: 2LP

A truly sensational find, this set presents a never before heard performance recorded in Avignon, France, featuring Yusef Lateef in a quartet set with fellow stars Kenny Barron, Bob Cunningham, and Albert “Tootie” Heath. Among the highlights are a fantastic flute/piano duet by Lateef and Barron playing the pianist's beautiful ballad “A Flower”, as well as extended readings of the classic “I'm Getting Sentimental Over You” (which Lateef recorded just one more time in 1971), Lateef's blues “Yusef's Mood” and Barron's “The Untitled.” This project, produced by the renowned Zev Feldman, is released with the full collaboration of the Yusef Lateef Estate, as well as those of the other artists involved. The audio has been transferred and newly remastered from the original concert tapes licensed from the archives of the Institut National de l'Audiovisuel (INA). Presented in a 2-LP 180-GRAM VINYL SET, the package will include a comprehensive LP-size booklet featuring exclusive interviews and essays, as well as rare photos.
