LES MCCANN LTD - MCCANNA



















Les McCann for Pacific Jazz from 1964.
Best album Les ever did imo which features the mighty latin dancefloor bomb "McCanna".
Les plays with his LTD trio, plus the added percussion of Willie Correa, who plays bongos, conga, and timbales on the album for a strong latin feel that's missing from Les' other recordings.5 cracking originals,couple of standards(just love the rolling "St James Infirmary")and a stomping Mancini-Mercer tune.
Can't believe this has never got a reissue.
All Killer No Filler.
