I mentioned earlier that, on the face of it, this ad hoc session didn't appear to have too much going for it. And the point is underlined when you consider the five pieces that constituted the original recorded program.
http://badgepirates.burnsforce.com/9191.php All of them were set at around the same tempo, between 34 and 38 bars per minute; four out of the five were in typically McCann funky mode; and two were bar blues. Yet it is precisely because of the continuity of mood and feeling that this album has such an aura of sustained euphoria.
The opening track, "Compared To What," the sardonic social commentary written by Gene McDaniels, who, earlier in his career, had sung with the Les McCann band, proved unquestionably to be the hit of the album. Les recalls: "Benny didn't know the tune. I don't think he ever played a song that was on just one chord before. I shouted to him, 'We're in F, man--just play!
Accordion A reed instrument developed in early nineteenth-century Europe, the accordion is worn like a vest and consists of right and left hand keyboards that are connected by a bellows. In both the nineteenth-century minstrel show and the early twentieth-century country music show, banjo players typically played comedy roles and were often musically marginal, although they were significant symbolically and for their tonal contributions within an ensemble.

People used to ask me afterwards, 'Who was that trumpet player? I had totally forgotten about it by then. But when I went back to the States about ten years later, I found the only way people knew about me--especially young people--was through that record.
That was amazing. They wouldn't have known me if it hadn't been for that album--so it proved very beneficial as far as my reputation was concerned. But, to tell the truth, I didn't really like the music too much--it was too commercial for me, not the kind of stuff I would normally choose to play. Still, the session developed such an irresistible groove that it just knocked everybody out. And the rhythm section was marvelous--Leroy's a tremendous walker on bass--he never wanted to take solos--and Donald Dean's a superbly swinging drummer.
Set to the same funky rhythm as "Compared To What," it was actually the group's encore.

Towards the end of the third chorus there is a great surge of applause. She was so gracious--she apologized to me right there and then! Then it is back to funk again with "You Got It In Your Soulness," a bar blues in E flat which is fundamental McCann and features that tension-and-release effect of which he is master.
There is some highly tasty solo work from Harris and a characteristically explosive solo from Bailey, followed by some typical down-home piano from Les, who displays another of his favorite devices--the reiterated semiquavers on the tonic note. The final selection from the original album, "The Generation Gap," is a modal piece which progresses from G minor through E flat minor with an A flat root to A minor and then B flat major before returning to G minor. Once again, Eddie has to call out the chords, but he and Benny sail through their solos as if they've been playing the piece for years.
When I got on the bandstand, there I was, the new slimmed-down McCann, trying to look cool--and I didn't know where the hell I was. I was totally disoriented. The other guys said, 'OK, play, man! And it was a one-off phenomenon--something that can never be repeated. But, happily, we can recapture the magic of that impromptu session through this album. Usually ships within 5 — 7 days!
