Perhaps the premier gospel-oriented jazz pianist, as well as a formidable singer, Les McCann was a leading light on the US soul jazz scene of the 1960s and became an international star with the release of Swiss Movement, recorded at the Montreux Jazz Festival with the late Eddie Harris.  Recorded in 1975 and produced by soul / jazz / blues veteran Bert DeCoteaux, features countless funkbusters like the swaggering instrumental ‘Us’ and the hard-swinging title track, as well as the heartfelt ‘Will We Ever Find Our Fathers’ featuring Herbie Hancock on piano.
