    Yusef Lateef is featured on four tracks on the excellent Slide Hampton album Drum Suite, released in 1962. The opener Fump, in 5/4,features Lateef on flute. According to the liner notes, this may be the first time 5/4 has been employed in such a large group.

    Lateef's tenor is a feature of Like Someone In Love, starting slowly, and moving into an up tempo section; the album is worth getting for this track alone.
    Gallery Grove features Lateef with George Coleman on tenor. He is heard again on Our Waltz. Check it out.
