SACRED STEEL BROTHERS AND A MUSICAL MODERNIST: ROBERT RANDOLPH & YUSEF LATEEF
Sacred steel guitarist Robert Randolph has gathered together the leading players of the genre for a 2013 recording, paying tribute to the past, and covering tunes outside the cannon. We’ll speak with him and one of his fellow Slide Brothers, Calvin Cooke. Then a conversation with the late musical modernist Yusef Lateef about his mentors and inspirations.
