Blue Yusef Lateef
4.3 out of 5 stars with 24 reviews
CD ALBUM A master of the tenor sax and myriad other woodwind instruments, Yusef Lateef is joined on this 1968 date by an all-star ensemble that features trumpeter Blue Mitchell, bassist Cecil Brooks, and guitarist Kenny Burrell. They delve into the spirituals on ''Juba, Juba,'' and the blues on ''Othelia,'' ''Back Home,'' and ''Six Miles Next Door.'' ''Moon Cup'' is an impassioned Afro-Eurasian eclipse of the medieval plainchant and Filipino chant, while ''Get Over, Get Off, and Get On'' sounds

The Much-anticipated Follow Up to the Multi-platinum Selling 'memeza' Will Definitely Not Disappoint. Produced by Chicco Twala, the Album Sticks to Brenda's '98 Release, Never Attempting to Break New Ground, but Rather Taking You Back Even Deeper Into her Early Career Than 'memeza' Attempted. The Result is a Mixture of Wedding Songs, and an Array of Classic Township Pop Tunes Influenced by Everything from Mbube to Funk with a Surprise Gospel Contribution featuring the Voice of Peter Mokoen.

VARIOS INTERPRETES MUSIC FROM THE COFFEE LANDS The artists gathered together here hail from nations and cultures noted for the growing and export of coffee. As with this CD's companion release, Music from the Tea Lands, one senses the possibility of lucrative product tie-ins, but part of the proceeds from the album are earmarked for charity and any catchy idea that gets the music out there is a good thing. Like the luscious drink itself, the tunes come in many intensities and flavors, ranging fr

This compilation offers maximum diversity

Damn funky Yusef Lateef! The record's one of Lateef's best on Atlantic -- as it combines the funky style the label was working him in, with some of the more complicated, tripped-out styles he was forging on earlier records. The standout cut is the long take on Kenny Barron's ''Nubian Lady'' which begins the record -- and Kenny also contributed the tighter grooving ''Jungle Plum''. Other tracks include ''African Song'', ''Queen Of The Night'', ''Poor Fishermen'', ''Below Yellow Bell'', and a stra

This is one of the first of Mapfumo's albums to be released in the United States and Europe, and it finds him and The Blacks Unlimited band at the top of their musical game. Compelling repeating guitar lines grab you as the first song ''Nyara Mukadzi Wangu'' starts. Soon, Mapfumo's growling voice takes center stage, handclapping and prodding the song along with serious edginess. ''Temerina'' and ''Emma'' are more laid-back and happier tunes propelled by horns, interlocking guitars, and percolati

2001 release. Created amidst the cultural boom that followed Zimbabwe's independence, the music that the Bhundu Boys recorded at Shed Studios in Harare between 1982 and 1986 was African dance pop, irresistibly powered by drums, guitars, voices and youthful high spirits. On the strength of these records, the Boys toured Europe and North America in the late '80s, winning new fans with their exuberant shows wherever they went, and were signed to a major international label. But their subsequent alb
