Yusef Lateef (heard on tenor, alto, flute, oboe and the mysterious-sounding theremin) is in explorative and consistently colorful form on this out-of-print LP, one of many Impulse sessions that are long overdue to be reissued on CD. With the assistance of pianist Hugh Lawson, bassist Reggie Workman and drummer Roy Brooks, Lateef performs ten songs (eight are his originals) that are all at least in abstract form related to the blues. Well worth several listens.
Lateef led six albums for Impulse before moving to Atlantic for over two decades. On this 1966 title, the theme is, loosely, the blues, with Lateef alternating instruments between tenor, alto, flute and oboe. The album title appears a reference to musical instruments which are formed out of concert pitch and therefore require transposition in musical notation. Note that explanation is pure guesswork. Suffice to say, someone who knows better will jump in and correct my mistake. Lateef also had a prediliction for introducing obscure instruments, and they don’t come more obscure than the theremin, an electronic instrument controlled by two metal antennas (antenae?) which sense the relative position of the performers hands, controlling pitch with one hand, and volume with the other, by hand-waving.
