The Les McCann Trio ~ Compared To What

video

Thank You To Ken At YouTube For The Tune

My Pop left the mortal plane on 11~8~07...he was a fan of jazz. Cannonball Adderley, Dizzy Gillespie, Sarah Vaughn, Ella Fitzgerald, Billy Eckstine, Joe Williams, Count Basie, Dave Brubeck, Duke Ellington, Stanley Turrentine, Miles Davis, Chet Baker, Clark Terry, King Oliver, Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, are only a few of the artists that were always spinning on his turntable. A tune i remember him being particularly fond of is Compared To What, performed live in 1969 by the Les McCann Trio at The Montreux Jazz Festival. May the gods speed Pop. Wherever your spirit may be, i know the styli are pristinely sharp.
