"... brings oboe, Chinese globular flute and other instruments to the hard bop table yet still remains accessible and fun."
- Sputnikmusic

"Anyone with an interest in cosmic jazz and the mind-blowing excursions of mid-to-late '60s African-American music owes it to themselves to hear this neglected masterpiece ... given the full Rudy Van Gelder treatment, Yusef Lateef’s brilliance has never sounded so clear ... this criminally overlooked multi-instrumentalist deserves to stand up there with the best of them ..."
- PopMatters.com

An innovator in mixing world music influences into jazz, there was considerable demand for Yusef Lateef's many recordings of the late 1950s and early 1960s that reflected his fascination with all things Asian; Eastern Sounds from 1961 is one of the multi-instrumental pioneer's best sellers. A stellar studio band helps Lateef realize his one-world vision of a music that knows neither stylistic boundaries nor expressive limitations.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
