Eastern Sounds (Standard Edition LP)
Please note that this is the standard, OJC pressing of Yusef Lateef's Eastern Sounds, not the sold-out Small Batch edition.
Originally released in April of 1962, this album features Yusef Lateef's continued exploration of Middle Eastern music, as well as covers of themes of the films Spartacus and The Robe. Lateef plays flute, oboe, tenor saxophone and a Chinese wind instrument called a xun. Features session players including the legendary Barry Harris on piano, Ernie Farrow and Lex Humphries.
