Lost Albums: Les McCann and Eddie Harris: Swiss Movement (1969)

compared to what

This classic jazz album was recorded in Montreux Jazz Festival in 1969, and is a fine record documenting a collaboration between pianist and vocalist Les McCann and trumpet player Eddie Harris. It is a fine sample of late 60s jazz–a little edgy, but not so edgy that the masses couldn’t find its grooves enjoyable.That it was a popular record is not surprising; it’s a very chilled-out, enjoyable snapshot of two jazz musicians at the height of their talent. Enjoy!
