From 1972, this is the 29th release by multi-instrumentalist Yusef Lateef. Performing along with a "Who's Who" of jazz players, Lateef once again shows off his passion for exploration. It's a trait that makes it hard to pigeonhole this album -- which goes from funk, to African traditional music, to spiritual trance. There's also some great playing by drummer Albert "Toody" Heath, bassist Chuck Rainey and pianist Kenny Barron, who also contributed three of his original compositions.

I was first attracted to this record by the funk/jazz track "Nubian Lady" but eventually came to enjoy the album as a whole. The vinyl is just shy of being called "Near Mint' -- there are just a few pops and crackles here and there, but overall, it sounds very clean. The cover is also clean and solid, with only a hint of wear. The inner sleeve, highlighting Atlantic Records' releases from 1972 is also dandy.

Once again, Yusef Lateef, armed with saxophone, flute (including African bamboo flute), and accompanied by some of the most interesting jazz artists, takes you on a jazz adventure that will have you playing this album again and again.
