Yusef Lateef Dies at 93

2013-12-25 by Adam Thomas EMERITUS | 19 Comments
On Monday morning, legendary jazz multi-instrumentalist Yusef Lateef passed at the age of 93 at his home in Shutesbury, Massachusetts. While mostly known as a gifted tenor saxophonist, Lateef experimented with a variety of instruments throughout his playing career, such as the flute, oboe, and bassoon; as well as with many non-Western techniques and styles, making jazz a global language. Lateef also taught with a passion at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst from 1987-2002. He toured relentlessly through his old age, with his last performance being this past summer at the age of 92.
