Does anyone know what mpce, reeds, yusuf Lateef played on his Super 20 tenor? I heard that the instrument was stolen 20 yrs. ago and he hasn't found a suitable replacement. In any case, how to quasi-immitate his tone?

I have a DVD of Yusef playing with the Adderlys in the 1960s and it sure looks and sounds like a metal Berg.

Sorry I don't know what mpc he used, but it's really interesting how many of the really well-know players had their horns stolen! It seems like there's a stolen horn story for almost every name player.

But in the meantime, he still sounds like Yusef Lateef. :D
