Biography by Scott Yanow. An innovative jazz pianist with a preference for the dance-based rhythms of jazz, gospel and funk.

Leslie Coleman "Les" McCann (born September 23, 1935, in Lexington, Kentucky) is an American soul jazz pianist and vocalist whose biggest successes came as a crossover artist into R&B and soul. An early musical success for McCann was his winning of a Navy talent contest for singing; this led to an appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. McCann's main career began in the early 1960s when he recorded as a pianist with his trio for Pacific Jazz Records.

Les McCann discovered Roberta Flack and arranged an audition which resulted in a recording contract for her with Atlantic Records Discography. Talk to the People (Atlantic, 1972). Live at Montreux (Atlantic, 1973). Layers (Atlantic, 1973).

This album, this one right here, exposes a fugitive. It flips the lid off Les McCann the piano player to reveal Les McCann the singer. The hidden man behind the man, the McCann behind the McCann. That in itself will be good news for previous McCann appreciators. It is due to the combined musicality of Les McCann and arranger Gerald Wilson. Gerald has set the arrangements around Les' ideas, adding his own. The result is almost total freedom, almost total agreement. The music says more for the stature of Gerald Wilson the Arranger than these words ever could: he has a singular way of saying the right thing in the right place. The rest of the notes will not be found on the album cover.
