Yusef Lateef collectors?


Yusef Lateef is an important artist whose connection with Sun Ra is modest--they worked together back in the Sonny Blount days. However, I've received a letter from a guy who's writing a Lateef discography. While he's had pretty good success with Lateef's many issued recordings, he's had trouble finding Lateef collectors out there who might have unissued recordings, radio broadcasts, concert tapes, interviews, and the like.

Bob Rusch says Yusef Lateef is a "musician's musician" and consequently there aren't many Lateef collectors out there. It'd be nice to be able to prove him wrong!

Anyhow, if you have unissued Lateef material, please contact

David M. Brown 10 Rosamond Drive Bradway Sheffield S17 4LW England

He's not on the Internet, unfortunately. Please also circulate this item to other jazz-related lists, if you can.
