Les McCann, "Burnin' Coal"
KOSMO's VINYL of the Week:
This week we are in RCA Studios, 55 East 24th St, NYC, on 20th November, 1968, for Les McCann's "Burnin 'Coal", first released on the "Much Les" LP on Atlantic...
"Lexington, Kentucky born Les McCann kick-started his musical career in 1958 when, as a singer, he won a US Navy talent contest that lead to a spot on the Ed Sullivan Show. Rather than pursuing singing, Les saw himself as primarily a piano player and began recording in 1960. He went on to become one of the major figures in what is now described as Soul Jazz.
On this cut, he is with not only Les McCann Trio regulars Leroy Vinnegar on bass and Donald Dean on drums, but also latin percussionist Willie Bobo. Groove on..." - KV
