Wie wir soeben von der Agentur erfahren, wurde die Tournee von Les mcCann ABGESAGT!! Wir bedauern das sehr. Weiter Infos folgen. Gekaufte Karten können täglich ab 18:00 im Reigen zurückgegeben werden.

Das Statement der Agentur:
Reluctantly we have to inform you that since lately the health situation of Les McCann doesn't allow any long flights and travels anymore. We therefore have to postpone the European tour to a later period in the Spring 2015. It will probably be April / May when also the weather makes travelling easier.
Les McCann was looking forward excitedly to the upcoming tour and is very disappointed to not be able to go now. The musicians and we are very sorry for this unforeseen development and apologize for the inconvenience caused for you.
Best regards,

Les Mcann ist wohl einer der liebenswertesten Musiker, die wir in den letzten 25 Jahren kennengelernt haben. Er spielte schon 1992 ein legendäres Doppelkonzert mit Eddie Harris und war dann öfters mit seiner" Magic Band" im Reigen. Er hat immer seine vielen Fans begeistert und wir freuen uns , daß er in der Lage ist, wieder auf Tour zu gehen und so Ehrengast unserer 25Jahre Konzerte zu sein!
Les McCann is known as one of the godfathers of soul jazz and recognized as a founding force for the genre known as funky jazz
established in the mid 1960’s. Former “Jazz Messenger” Javon Jackson’s current musical group, The Javon Jackson Band, incorporates many styles including jazz, funk, r&b and rock. This collaboration of the young along side the legend is not to be missed. In the words of the jazz bassist Marcus Miller, “This is the way to get your ‘old school’ funk groove on!"

Lucky 13, Javon Jackson’s thirteenth recording as leader is a combination of five recently composed originals, one cover from the songbook of Stevie Wonder and three selections with the iconic soul jazz pianist, vocalist and composer Les McCann. Jackson and McCann have been touring together for the past five years and quoting Jackson, “Les is a living legend and it is a blessing to have him on tour with the Javon Jackson Band.” Their live experience is captured beautifully from a performance of “Compared to What” in Washington, DC at the Kennedy Center in 2008 included on Lucky 13. The trio for this recording are three young lions that as Jackson puts it emphatically, “All three have dynamic careers ahead of them.” This trio consists of Joel Holmes-piano, Corcoran Holt-bass and McClenty Hunter-drums.
