Their musical association stretches back to 1988, and includes 14 albums and concerts ranging from duos, to work with the Koln, Atlanta and Detroit Symphony Orchestras. A virtuoso on a broad spectrum of reed instruments, Yusef Lateef is universally acknowledged as one of the great living masters and innovators in the African-American musical tradition. “Yusef Lateef is an artist in the purest form of the word," says Jazz Weekly. Adam Rudolph has been developing his unique approach to hand drums in creative collaboration with such masters of improvised music as Sam Rivers, Pharaoh Sanders, L. Shankar, and Fred Anderson. "Rudolph reinvents world music for sophisticated listeners...he fuses many world musics into a very artful and keenly constructed whole," writes EAR.
