Honeypie present a reissue of Les McCann Sings, originally released in 1961. Here's a true West Coast soul-jazz gem originally released on Pacific Jazz. Les McCann's warm and emotional singing shines over some gorgeous big band arrangements signed by the great conductor and bandleader Gerald Wilson. McCann's usual trio with Herbie Lewis on bass and Ron Jefferson on drums is augmented by a phenomenal bunch of West Coast top musicians including clarinetist Buddy Collette, tenor sax lions Charles Lloyd, Teddy Edward, and Harold Land, and two absolute guest stars: tenor sax giant Ben Webster and organ stylist Richard "Groove" Holmes, what else? "Soul-jazz and blues at their best." --All Music
