Good episode? Give it some love!
It's a two-hander episode as Craig & Joe discuss Yusef Lateef, a jazz musician, Ahmadiyya Muslim, & friend of the legendary saxophonist John Coltrane.

Wary of the term "jazz" as a Eurocentric/White Supremacist flattening of the complex & interwoven styles of Afro-American music, Lateef preferred to call the music he made "autophysiopsychic music" - which he defined as "Music which comes from one's physical, mental and spiritual self… to others."
