I agree with Mr. Lateef's belief that we should curiously seek knowledge from the cradle to the grave, not complacently accepting what's basic or popular. "The heart of the understanding one acquires knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeks to find knowledge." Proverbs 18:15

Truly sorry for your loss. I'm sure Yusef will be remembered for his skills and abilities in the music industry. May God also keep him in his book remembrance. Malachi 3:16.

Another legend of jazz is gone. I was shocked to hear of the passing of Yusef Lateef he was such a talent on all the instruments he played. All his music was so uplifting and happy. His "Bright Moments" song was just awesome, I found that on one of my jazz compilation albums. WOW I can just imagine the great jam sessions going on in heaven right now. May the protecting spirit of our loving savior be with your family at this time of sadness. Rest in Peace Bro Lateef. Thanks for all of the "Bright Moments" you left us.
