Ahmad Jamal featuring Yusef Lateef: Live at the Olympia – June 27 2012 – review - The Financial Times
"The first CD features [Ahmad Jamal] and his quartet in peak creative form, capturing the daring dynamics and textural minutiae of their studio album Blue Moon High in a pulsating live performance.
The late multi-instrumentalist Yusef Lateef joins the quartet for most of Disc 2, delivering gruff tenor-sax daubs and strange moans and sighs on “Exatogi” and moody flute on “Mascara”. “Trouble in Mind” is one of two idiosyncratic vocals...Highly recommended”
