Yusef Lateef October 08 2015

Yusef Lateef born on 9th October 1920.... today would had been his 95th Birthday Lateef played many instruments including the flute sax and oboe  he played along side many of the greats including Dizzy Gillespie and Cannonball Adderley but his greatest success was with his own bands and doing his own projects ...... Freddy always loved telling the story of how Brother Yuseef knocked on his London apartment door and excitedly asking if he could come in and use Freddys record deck as he had just brought a new record album and couldnt wait till he got home to listen to it  so Freddy and Yusef spent the afternoon relaxing chatting listening to music and having a coffee
