I was wondering about this as well. Lateef would have been in his early 90s(!) when this was recorded (he died a year later at 93).

 

The blurb at HD Tracks (below) answered the question for me.  Looks like he joined the band for the final song (Poinciana).  I'm looking forward to giving this a listen once Tidal gets it.

 

 

 

Check out the video of "Poinciana" on YouTube.  No sign of Yusef on the stage.  Maybe is he off to the side.  I also do not hear a horn at all.

This is both an outstanding performance AND recording of Mendelssohn’s masterpiece.

 

I discovered the hi-res version, which in this case sounds considerably better, on the label’s website, for a reasonable $12.99.

@coot these organ duos/trios have really grown on me since coming across the ages old Cellier pan flute and organ recording.  By no means are they every day listening material.  The coordination required makes them quite special 'recitals' in my mind that are worth owning.

 

Having seen the coordination and mastery of repertoire these twin sisters exhibit playing separate grand pianos.  It is also quite extraordinary.

Blue Note puts out some very interesting compilations and this series is great.
