    Personnel: Yusef Lateef (tenor saxophone, flute, oboe); Hugh Lawson (piano); Herman Wright (bass); Roy Brooks, Jr. (drums).
    Recorded at Van Gelder Recording Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey in June 1966. Originally released on Impulse (9125).
    The emphasis is on older tunes and styles on this Yusef Lateef Impulse! album. Lateef (switching between tenor, flute, and oboe) plays such numbers as "Straighten Up and Fly Right," "Ghost of a Chance," "Exactly like You" (on oboe), and "Rosetta" along with some group originals. Lateef has long been a true original, and he revitalizes the standards while always swinging and being a bit unpredictable. Well worth searching for, this was Lateef's final Impulse! album before switching to Atlantic. ~ Scott Yanow
