Pianist Les McCann is the newest jazz personality on the West Coast to create a positive sensation. His first album on Pacific Jazz established him as a unique jazz personality with roots in church gospel and blues. Les McCann Ltd. opened a new coffee house on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood called “The Bit” and in less than three weeks time firmly established the group as the hip jazz room in Hollywood. Les is backed by the Rock of Gibraltar in that extraordinary musician LeRoy Vinnegar, widely known for his bass work with Shelley Manne’s groups, and drummer Ron Jefferson, a new arrival on the West Coast Jazz scene who has played on the East Coast with a group known as the Jazz Modes.
