Wherever did Leonard get the musical inspiration for Tacoma Trailer, the instrumental cut on The Future? The Jazz Police have discovered a clue. It may be stolen from a 1968 piece by Yusef Lateef Listen to this beautiful piece, especially 5:59 onward. Sound familiar? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=...
