Yet another one from the prolific pen of Yusef Lateef. I could spend a year just posting my favorite blueses from Yusef Lateef albums, but I (probably) won’t.
Here’s another blues from the same album as last week’s, and a continuation of my tribute to Yusef Lateef.
Carrying on with my Yusef Lateef birthday celebration, here’s a blues by Yusef himself, as featured on the album of the same name by bassist Doug Watkins. Watkins actually plays cello exclusively on the album, leaving the low end duties to Herman Wright.
I mentioned a while ago that I’d share this Buster Williams blues. One more tune and I’ll have lead sheets for this whole album posted on the site.
I love the bass playing of Reggie Workman. He is always listening attentively to his bandmates, matching their intensity and prodding them to new heights without stealing the spotlight. On this Freddie Hubbard blues, he gets a short walking feature out front to set up the tempo.
