Yusef Lateef at Roulette, April 6th 2013

26 Apr

I have been meaning to mention the last Yusef Lateef show I saw at Roulette in Brooklyn on April 6th. After the show, I was literally elated. Lateef played the saxophone, the flute, various percussions and read poems. The last poem dealt with how one should replace thorns in one’s heart with love. It was mesmerizing.

And Howard Mandel’s blogpost on the matter is enlightening: http://www.artsjournal.com/jazzbeyondjazz/2013/04/yusef-lateef-the-autophysiopsychics-valedictory.html
