Yusef Lateef – The Doctor Is In ...And Out (Pure Pleasure)
Known for his pioneering and multi-instrumental blend of jazz and Afro-Eastern musical traditions, Yusef Lateef was never content to just use his music to merely entertain, but long strived to encourage his audiences to engage their minds as well as their ears. This eccentric yet excellent 1976 date for Atlantic finds Lateef playing multiple instruments and working in a rather large ensemble with the likes of Jack Jeffers (trombone); Joseph Wilder/Leonard Goines (trumpet); Jonathan Dorn (tuba); Billy Butler (guitar); Ron Carter (bass); Kenneth Barron (keyboards); Al Foster (drums) and Dom Um Romao (percussion). With fantastic forays into Latin funk, urban blues, and electronic musique concrète, The Doctor Is In...And Out is another inspired effort from a deeply unconventional and eternally curious artist.
