Yusef Lateef: Ronnie Scott's, London

Mick Farren, International Times, 28 July 1967

YUSEF LATEEF is at present playing a season at Ronnie Scotts backed by the Stan Tracey Trio. I have always thought of Lateef as one of the Wildmen of jazz, a kind of exotic Roland Kirk. At his show, however, last Thursday, I was sadly disappointed, for although he came on stage with a pocket full of flutes and recorders these were never used.
