“Yusef Lateef is in the most ambitious period of a career that has progressed from '40s swing and bop through an examination of various world musics. … Dr. Lateef is a living link to America’s music history. Always he has evolved, manifesting his own expressions in blues, swing, bop, hard bop, avant-garde, world, electronic and even symphonic music, and making his most challenging contributions late in life… every note he plays, on sax, flute or whatever, contains nearly a century of musical history and personal experience, examined and re-examined at every restless turn.” – Greg Burk, LA Weekly
