Legendary Detroit Jazz Saxophonist Yusef Lateef, 93
"He gained notoriety as early as the 1950s in Detroit for his prescient experiments with what would come to be known as "world music," grafting exotic instruments like the Egyptian arghul and the melodic contours and rhythms of Africa and the Middle and Far East onto the trunk of hard-swinging modern jazz."
