Avignon 1972 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Cloître des Célestins, Avignon, France; July 19, 1972. Very good FM broadcast.

Grammy-winning musician Yusef Lateef was a multi-instrumentalist known for fusing jazz and Eastern music. He played in bands with Dizzy Gillespie and Charles Mingus and gained a global following as one of the first to incorporate world music into jazz. In 1987 he won a Grammy for best new age performance for Little Symphony, on which he played all the instruments. He died of cancer in 2013. He was 93.
