Synopsis

Album Description
2010 collection of early '60s recordings from the Soul/Jazz pianist. Though he often performed familiar selections from the American Songbook, McCann's appeal as a high-profile Soul Jazz popularizer was all down to his abilities as a groove cutter on self-penned juke box friendly tunes including 'Vacushna', 'A Little _ For God & Co', 'Fish This Week But Next Sunday Chitlings' and 'The Truth'. All these and much more are included on this collection that documents Les McCann's impressive debut on record. For the first seven tracks, Les McCann Ltd are joined by one of Central Avenue's original bebop tenor sax icons - Teddy Edwards, who most famously locked horns with Dexter Gordon and Wardell Gray. Edwards was also a member of Howard Rumsey's famed Lighthouse All-Stars and, in 1954, became Clifford Brown's original front line partner in Roach-Brown Inc. 15 tracks. Giant Steps.
