Yusef Lateef – Nubian Lady

Noted for his blending of middle eastern sounds, soul and jazz, Yusef Lateef is at his grooviest, with Nubian Lady.  This track is by no-means new.  Released on the vinyl LP Gentle Giant back in the early 70’s, it translates perfectly into 2012, where electronic chill  meets ambient grooves.  I cannot find a source for the CD version of Gentle Giant, which had at one time been re-released by Rhino.  If you can find one, please send it to me, as I’d love to add this CD to my collection.  At 92, Yusef Lateef still maintains an MySpace page and there is plenty of historical information on the web. Take a listen. You won’t be disappointed.
