Format: Audio CD
In the 60s, jazz had two seperate streams flowing into the same river: free jazz and soul jazz. Idiotically, critics took sides, as if both these types of beautiful music were mutually exclusive. Tonight's card, Jimmy Smith vs. Cecil Taylor, 15 rounds. Then again, in those days, everything was polorized. Music, like hair and dress, was politics.

This is fortunately no longer the case, and if you like soul jazz, look no further than this album. McCann and Harris create a tight, rocking R&B that is both danceable and ellgent. This is not a organ romp one off, but polished, well-composed music with outstanding players. Grit and gloss to every note. Great vocals.

It also works as an album. There is not a sliver of filler on here.
If you like soul jazz, buy this. Then again, if you like free jazz, buy this.

Anybody who's around my age, 27, and has been grooving to bands like Karl Denson, Galactic, Medeski, Martin and Wood, Soulive and Lake Trout, should totally check out this disc. This is the way it was done back in the day, Eddie and Les are pioneers of this sound. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Funky. "Shorty Rides Again" will brighten your day. "Carry On Brother" is anthem for anyone with a funky soul. Les & Eddie are telepathic in their exchanges. I'd go as far as to say there are moments here that have Swiss Movement beat. Don't miss this...get on down!!!

At the risk of dating myself, I've waited a long time for this one to return! My original copy, on LP has truly seen better days. Every cut on this CD is excellent, but I must acknowledge the significance of "The Universal Prisioner". What a message of motivation! "Shorty rides again", and again and again! This one is a classic!!!!

I loved this when it came out when I was in high school , and lost it in the switch from LP to cassette to CD. Cannot believe I lived for 25 years without having it to groove to.

Format: Audio CD
While this duo's "Swiss Movement" concert album draws most of the raves (and had the benefit of a huge hit single with "Compared to What"), this album was pretty darn strong too. Only 5 tracks, but they are all quality, especially "Universal Prisoner" and "Carry On Brother" (which also should have been a big hit). Eddie Harris wails on the sax, and McCann's vocals and keyboards deftly fit the groove too. Add some ace session players such as Bernard Purdie, Cornell Dupree, and more, and you have a very tight group of musicians. Harris and McCann supposedly had their conflicts (in the liner notes, producer Joel Dorn describes them as "like oil and water", and adds that he often had a difficult time working with Harris) but they produced some excellent music in the short time they collaborated. Soul-Jazz fans should love this one.
