Yusef Lateef: Eastern Sounds

Friday, April 22, 2011

I'm rendered speechless each time I hear Yusef Lateef's version of the "Love Theme from Spartacus" from his iconic album Eastern Sounds. I love how warm his oboe and Barry Harris' piano are as they take up the beautiful rhythmic undulations where strings once played on the original, which on its own is stunning. Have you heard it? Take a listen over here.

I'm kind of salivating over this right now lol. Need to look into where I can buy Eastern Sounds on vinyl because having this around the apartment would be the sweetest thing.

Happy Friday!
