Les McCann And Eddie Harris Swiss Movement on LP
Cut by Bernie Grundman from the Original Master Tapes
An All-Time Audiophile Spectacular That Sounds Better Than Ever
The Most Definitive Version of "Compared to What" Ever Recorded
Amazing Sound + Amazing Performances = An Amazing LP
Pianist/vocalist Les McCann has a somewhat undeserved reputation for recording faddish albums. The reason being? He never topped this brilliant, 1969 soul-jazz masterpiece, which remains a must for every music fan on the planet.
This impromptu session at the 1969 Montreux Jazz Festival finds tenor saxophonist Eddie Harris and trumpeter Benny Bailey joining McCann's working trio that included Leroy Vinnegar on bass and Donald Dean on drums, turning in the most definitive version of "Compared to What" ever recorded as well as four other tracks steeped in funk, joy, and cool persuasion.
One of the most popular live soul/jazz albums of all time, now in much-improved fidelity thanks to Bernie Grundman's mastering from the original master tapes. An audiophile delight!
