Yusef Lateef's incorporation of Asian traditions, modes and instruments into his music has aroused great sympathy among jazz audiences. Perhaps the fascination lay in the seemingly ineradicable human need for mysticism, perhaps in the infinite appeal of the sadness and beauty of minor keys. In any case, there was considerable demand for Lateef's numerous recordings from the late 1950s and early 1960s, which reflected his fascination with the Oriental. "Eastern Sounds" was indeed one of his biggest sellers. One of jazz's warmest and most accessible soloists, Lateef has mastered not only conventional reed instruments but many unconventional ones as well. Here he uses only tenor saxophone, flute and oboe, creating mystery and exoticism.
