Psychicemotus by Yusef Lateef
Released: Jun 1964
Label: Impulse! Records
This 1965 Impulse release is a good place to hear a variety of paths that Lateef travels. The title cut shows how he can make the avant-garde sound mainstream, "Bamboo Flute Blues" explores Asian folk, and the old Jerome Kern standard "Why Do I Love You" is done almost straight. He even follows Herbie Mann's lead in covering "Gymnopedie" on the flute.
