Reissue, originally released in 1960. In 1959, at the time of this recording session, Yusef Lateef was already approaching a new and more open form of jazz. A sophisticated, spiritual yet urban music form informed by non-western languages and cultures. Cry! - Tender is a deeply inventive, mostly contemplative album inspired by an original cosmopolitan vision of jazz and based on masterful playing from a bunch of solid jazz musicians including among others: Wilbur Harden - flugelhorn; Hugh Lawson - piano; Herman Wright - bass; and Oliver Jackson - drums, percussion. All under the direction of master of ceremonies Yusef Lateef on tenor sax, flute, and oboe. Clear vinyl.
