Your periodic reminder that Yusef Lateef recorded himself blowing over a record from the 1930s and put it on one of his albums, a breathtakingly fresh idea and one that I would love more jazz musicians to try

I just listened to this piece that was relesed in 1976. Very cool. I looked up copyright rules and learned that until 1978 music copyright was 28 years with an option to renew for another 28 years. The option had to be picked up in the 28th year of the original copyright term. The copyright holder could have easily missed the deadline or lost interest, so the copyright of the original music Yusef Lateef played over likely had expired.
When you just want to play your guitar but your Dad is that dude from Pink Floyd!
Very funny. Lemme show you the E-chord, son!
I’ll end with this tweet. I love the comment: I ordered beer, so why did they bring me beer?
