This superior set (which has been reissued on CD) features Yusef Lateef on some straight-ahead tunes, including "When You're Smiling (The Whole World Smiles with You)," "I'll Remember April," and "You've Changed." In addition, there are some more adventurous and exotic works too, making this a well-rounded program. Lateef is joined by pianist Barry Harris, bassist Herman Wright, and drummer Elvin Jones for a particularly memorable performance.
