Complete your Yusef Lateef collection. A great start to his impulse era. I love this lp for many reasons. He pulls in a lot of influences here and puts them in the foreground. It's a stellar effort and he keeps his sound strong.

Yusef Lateef's first Impulse! date Jazz 'Round the World anticipates the emerging vogue for global music with a series of impassioned interpretations of traditional ethnic folk songs. Lateef's unerring navigation of far-flung melodies and rhythms is matched by his instrumental prowess. In addition to tenor saxophone and flute, he plays the bassoon and the oboe, but nothing about the album smacks of novelty or dilettantism. Supported by an exemplary band including trumpeter Richard Williams, pianist Hugh Lawson, bassist Ernie Farrow, and drummer Lex Humphries, Lateef proves that.

Yusef Lateef stayed true to this dictum throughout a formidable and extraordinarily long career. Originally William Emanuel Huddleston, Lateef was one of the earliest jazz players to convert to Islam, taking his new name in the late 1940s. When The Wire’s Steve Holtje interviewed him in 1997, he was still spreading the faith like a new disciple and proudly quoted the words of wisdom above. Jazz ’Round The World, recorded for Impulse! in 1964, showcases its wide palette of sounds on the album cover – Lateef is pictured next to an array of reed instruments, from bassoon to oboe to saxophone. The music inside takes the exoticist subtext of Prayer To The East (1957) and Eastern Sounds (1961) and spins a whole album around the concept of far-flung nations.

Jazz 'Round The World. Dr. Yusef Lateef (born William Emanuel Huddleston, October 9, 1920 – December 23, 2013) was an American jazz t, composer and educator and a renowned spokesman for the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community after his conversion to Islam in 1950. Lateef was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee, but his family moved to Detroit, Michigan in 1925. Although Lateef's main instruments are the tenor saxophone and flute, he is known for his innovative blending of jazz with Eastern music.
