“What does it sound like to find yourself? To collect all of the pieces of you and put them into a shape that reflects who you are, reflects your journey? It could sound a lot like Yusef Lateef’s 1960 album, The Three Faces of Yusef Lateef. Make no mistake, this album is far from the end of his journey, far from the nal piece snapped into place. Lateef never stopped learning, never stopped growing. So this album doesn’t represent the whole or everything he would become, but just a fragment of the sound that would ultimately emerge.”
