Once a member of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, saxophonist Javon Jackson "plays funk with a slow hand...he doesn't beat matters to a froth but allows them to come to fruition in their own time" (The Philadelphia Inquirer). Pianist Les McCann is "a very adept musical showman...his imaginative resources create a fascinating kaleidoscope of musical moods." In the KC Jazz Club, the duo with a band revisits McCann's landmark 1969 album Swiss Movement, recently re-released by Rhino/Atlantic. Recorded at the Montreux Jazz Festival that year, the album featured the huge Billboard pop chart hit "Compared to What," a rousing rally against the Vietnam War.
