AllMusic Review by

This out-of-print double LP reissues an earlier album and adds six performances that were previously unreleased. Yusef Lateef (on tenor, flute, oboe, shenai and argol) heads a quintet with trumpeter Richard Williams, pianist Mike Nock, bassist Ernie Farrow and drummer James Black on a set of music ranging from the movie theme "Song of Delilah" and "I Remember Clifford" to a diverse range of original compositions. Highpoints include "Yusef's Mood," "Sister Mamie," "Twelve Tone Blues" and "See See Rider."
