    This is one of my very favorite Jazz albums (minus the odd track "Moon Cup"), and the first one I've ever heard with harmonica!

      Joel Dorn. I think he had a dart board pasted with all his crazy ideas and would just chuck darts at it when it came time to produce an album. That's how we end up with Yusef's "Moon Cup" faux-chinese insanity. Don't get me wrong, he's responsible for collaborating and pushing the artists he worked with to great heights, too. Props for William S Fischer's arrangements - another guy worth tracking down.

          Begin the Atlantic years with Joel Dorn. Yusef makes his transformation from a caterpillar into a butterfly (or moth based on your tastes). This is a crazy one and he probably lost his audience on this. It has a cover of Morning called Like it Is and it is primarily soul jazz with some breaks. It has this crazy vocal track sung by Yusef that sounds like a sarcastic "Asian" yodel. You see great lineup with some new faces.
